The Orange View (on hiatus) Because Apple is great but it isn't perfect


Or not — Germany falls for Apple’s patent nonsense

Coming to the exact opposite conclusion of a Dutch judge earlier this week, a German court ruled in Apple's favor and banned sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab in that country. The judge also dismissed concerns about Apple's use of a phony photo of the Tab, saying it was unintentional and easily explained, according to a Bloomberg report on the ruling.

If nothing else, these kind of opposing rulings prove yet again the vagueness and ambiguity of so-called design patents, a horrid concept that hampers competition in the tech space.
