U.K. court rules that Samsung's Galaxy Tab doesn't copy Apple's designs

Samsung scores! U.K. judge rules that their Galaxy Tab doesn't copy Apple's iPad design

After some intense legal battles, Samsung has gotten a court to side with them for once. Samsung have said that the High Court of England and Wales ruled that its Galaxy Tab didn't infringe on Apple's tablet designs, and found 50 different recognizable traits.

Considering Samsung have just gone through their Galaxy Nexus being banned in the U.S. temporarily, this is a great day for Samsung. Both of the companies are fighting each other in different courts across the world, for different things, and it seems that they're both waiting for a judge to rule so harshly, that the other is forced to sit down and work out an agreement.

 

The ruling today was in regards to three Samsung Galaxy tablets, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 7.7. The court cited the differences they found were in the thickness of the devices, front and rear surface designs, and the lack of physical buttons.
