what i can't understand is dat....why...why u must do all of this, why go to so much trouble...they juss want money...i could understand if it was in the process of being made...but seriously it is already out....leave it alone..customers like both.....so wat if it looks slightly different, wat r u apple, like 4 yrs old...suck it up
I have rounded rectangle shape breadboard at home. Should I be also sued by Apple? Can they stop me from entering my kitchen? St..pid Apple.
Apple has original ideas....that's why they would pay Nokia...hahahha

It's already a top dog if we're talking profit! Had it considered the Galaxy line-up unworthy of its attention, then Apple would still end up winning, simply because it's Apple. It's destroying itself wildly suing competitors, and the people - the fans - are noticing this self-induced downfall, and we're not liking it one bit.
If I can copy it and make it better too bad. It seems to me that apple is copying android. notification bar, multitasking, WiFi hot spot, and soon to come widgets and live wallpaper. But that's just me.
I Love Apple n all of its product
I Love iPhone n all of its generation
CUZ i am an iPhone Lover !
BUT i dont like when all this thing happens .
Its Such Like two Kids fighting for an ice cream.!SOOO Childish . --"
This will make other brands like htc,google, n etc going to sue apple too . im just afraid that apple will go bancrupt n i cant stand a chance to own the next gen of the iPhone 5 :(
PLEASE APPLE STOP DOING ALL THIS .?
TALK NICELY n SETTLE GREATLY . REALLY HOPE . :(
why didn't Nokia sued samsung many years ago,when they were the KING??Because they were not so greedy like Apple...
i think apple has no work left to do......but travellin from this courtroom to tht courtroom apple sucks and i think i support samsung fully in this mission......stoppin sumones work n tryin to publish their own shows hw ill minded apple could be!!they r jus scared of competition nw!!!!!
I disagree with you.
There is certain level of corruption everywhere in the world - some countries have more, some less. Patent wars are very common - the very nature of a patent is to protect a company's innovation from simply being copied. Companies invest billions of dollars in R&D and product development, and they will only survive if a certain return can be achieved. The law is designed to protect companies.
It is how you play the game. The German law is very complex and probably ideal for such games. If you have a great lawyer, they'll find loopholes in everything. You just have to dare to invest in such a risky affair, as you can see there is a reputation at stake and money to be lost. If you succeed however, your reward is phenomenal.
I don't completely agree with the ruling myself, but for those who really want a Galaxy Tab - eBay.
In a way, this should spur Samsung to think outside the box. Many manufacturers have copied Apple's ideas and improved them - that is a fact, and normal market behaviour. It can't be denied that Apple wasn't the first to produce a smartphone either, Windows Mobile and HTC did way before them - but Apple perfected it. So in all fairness, HTC and Windows missed their chance in the first place.
Since the iPhone, the mobile phone world has changed, and Apple is doing all it can to remain exclusive. That's a perfectly normal business strategy.
This happens all the time, so the ball is now in Samsung's court to be the innovator.
apple really sucks where is iphone 5 go to court. running stop be retard apple. samsung make technology and u try to stop "do better. piece of sht" IF U GOOD
I never have purchased an Apple proDuct and never will so help me God.
Apple is destroying the healthy competition. Who suffers? End users like us.
Actually apple also clone the design from digital photo frame, why eu/german court dont ban it ?
Hmm...this def sounds absurd...well then moto shud ve an upperhand...for introducing mobile phns in the first place...
Or samsung should make round tablets...
Seriously s this how apple reacts to competition...petty...crying "mommmy" all the time doesnt fetch u market...
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2011Ban should be around the world. Samsung design for all their smartphones and tablets are copy ... moreHey, if you like apple and decided to make a trolling arena, don't do it. What about sony ericsson?
Phones can be square, circle, and hexagonal, but what a company wants is a satisfied user. That's not gonna happen until Apple realizes it's mistakes. I hope Tim Cook stops this.
