Default Apple at it once again

BBC News - Euro ban for Samsung Galaxy phone
Netherlands judge rules that Samsung Galaxy S, S II violate Apple patents, bans sales - Engadget
This is just getting ridiculous

Pretty much. However, Samsung out of the numerous patent filings, that is the ONLY one which stuck. IMO, this is a HUGE win for Samsung since the judge threw out things that couldn't be fixed via a software update like look, style and design.

Was it not apple who sued microsoft for having a monopoly? Apple might be in danger of getting sued themselves for their phone monopoly.

I hate Apple. This is one reason why.

Also, the patent system is a joke.
