    Default Apple Secures Galaxy Ban in Netherlands


    Here we go again. On Wednesday, news out of Europe confirmed that Apple proved successful in its latest attempt to lay the smack down on Samsung Galaxy products. Having apparently persuaded the Dutch court to believe that Samsung's products trample on Apple's intellectual property relating to photo-scrolling via touchscreen device, the sales of Galaxy products have been banned in the Netherlands.

    According to details emerging from the verdict, the ban in question applies just to Galaxy products that run Android 2.2.1 and higher. Anything that doesn't use Samsung's proprietary photo gallery software is a big no-no.

    Apple patented a way to scroll past the edge of a zoomed-in photo and see a glimpse of the next in a series of images, after which the initial photo bounces back onto the screen, a technique that Samsung has used in its Galaxy products.
    "The argument raised by Samsung at the hearing that Samsung Benelux does not sell the infringing products any more, cannot lead to a rejection of the ban," Judge Peter Blok observed as the verdict came to light. Blok, however, reportedly said he would grant the ban "because Samsung refused to sign a declaration of abstinence committing to not infringing the patent."

    So what happens now (since these bans and verdicts tend to be overlooked and worked through over time)? The court is asking Samsung to let Apple know what type of profits it has enjoyed from these "infringing Galaxy products" in the last 18 months or so. It will then be up to the court to determine how much of these funds Samsung will have to pay Apple.

    Every tech site is reporting that there is NO BAN, and Samsung has 8 weeks to issue a software update--get your facts straight.

    Go play on busy road! And allow people to take from it what they will! It even states that it is unlikely to lead to sales being stopped!

    You didn't forget to take your meds because apparently you need to have some prescribed.
