Patent War: Samsung loses case against Apple in Netherlands
The Apple Vs. Samsung continues and a not so good news is coming in for Samsung from Netherlands. The Korean giant has lost another patent related case against Cupertino based Apple.
A court in Netherlands in a ruling said today that Samsung infringed on Apple’s patent (EP 2.059.868) which related to scrolling in the gallery.
As a result of this ruling, Samsung will have to update all its Android devices running on Android 2.1, 2.2 and Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS within a timeframe of 8 weeks. Oh and if Samsung does not roll out the update for all the devices running on the above mentioned OS version of Android, the company might have to cough up $128,974 (EUR 100,000) a day.
Samsung Benelux is definitely disappointed with the decision and has said:
Apple wants to restrict consumer choice and innovation discourage their excessive and incorrect legal claims… We take all possible measures to protect consumer choice in the Netherlands.
