Yet another court agrees that the Samsung Galaxy Tab does not infringe upon patents held by Apple regarding the iPad. It turns out that in the Netherlands, round corners are not patentable, or at least don't belong to Apple. The district court in The Hague ruled that the rounded corners of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, 8.9, and 7.7 do not infringe on the iPad.
"We continue to believe that Apple was not the first to design a tablet with a rectangular shape and rounded corners and that the origins of Apple's registered design features can be found in numerous examples," reads a Samsung statement.
The Dutch court apparently cited previous rulings made by British courts as precedent. There are still plenty of other legal battles still going on between the two tech giants, including hashing out the details of the $1.05 billion judgement that Apple got against Samsung last year.
