Samsung has won a legal ruling after an U.K. judge said the Galaxy tablets aren’t “cool” enough to be confused with Apple’s iPad, reports “Bloomberg” (http://macte.ch/DxdmG).
The design for three Galaxy tablets doesn’t infringe Apple’s registered design,, and consumers aren’t likely to get the tablet computers mixed up, Judge Colin Birss said in a London court. He said the Galaxy tablets “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design,” and added that “they are not as cool.”
Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. For example, Apple alleges that Samsung copied the slide-to-unlock technology of its iPhone and iPad devices.
