apple vs samsungAmsterdam: Apple won an injunction in a Dutch court on Wednesday to discontinue Samsung Electronics from marketing 3 smartphone models in some European countries after claiming a breach of patents.

Apple argued that Samsung had infringed on 3 of its patents. The court ruled that Samsung smartphones Galaxy S, S II and Ace infringed just one of Apple’s patents.

Apple said in a statement “It’s no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging.”

According to the reports, the court dismissed all other demands by Apple, saying there were no violations of 2 other Apple patents, no violations for Samsung’s tablet computers Galaxy Tab, and no violations of model rights.And there was no “slavish style copying”, the court added.

The patent violation could be resolved by making technical changes in the smartphones, the court ruled. This would after that allows the sale of the smartphones.
