A court in Dutch city The Hague has issued a ruling in Apple’s patent infringement case against Samsung, prohibiting ”the marketing of Samsung smartphones Galaxy S, S II and Ace for violation of Apple Inc. EP 2,058,868″ from October 13.
According to a release issued by the Dutch court, Samsung infringes on three of Apple’s European patents, including; 2,058,868 (method of scrolling), 2098948 (recording a flag in connection with multiple screen taps), and 1,964,022 (method of unlocking). The Netherlands judge also noted that other Samsung devices — the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Tab 10.1v — violate Apple patents.
Don’t go panic-buying Galaxy S2 handsets just yet, though, as the guys over at SamFirmware say all issues will be resolved with an ‘emergency software update’.
We’ll bring you more news as soon as we get it.
