Doesnt this mean that samsung will sue Apple for loss of earnings? or is it not at that stage yet?

as i understand it, if apple's case fails they were in line for a counter suit due to this injunction.

Hopefully the German court adds major punitive damages to the other costs induced by Apple's poor decisions.

Maybe samsung should sue apple in the US courts for copying samsungs own "ipad" design.

It certainly predates the iphone and ipad release dates.

It's not just Apple people, chill.

Sony Ericsson sued Samsung in 2006 for patent infringement.
Nokia sued Samsung in 2009 for price fixing.
HTC also sued Samsung for trademark infringement this year

It's just the anti-Apple camp that's a bit emo that's all. Relax.

The court does not decide simply to just sue somebody, they are simply the means by which somebody IS sued. Sure, they made a wrong call. However, the malicious intent belonged to Apple. They WERE DOING THE SUING.
