Dutch court hears Apple’s arguments against Samsung, will give a decision on September 15


Unlike the German proceedings, the Netherlands court today held a hearing on the Apple-Samsung case and after hearing all the arguments and defense, the court has decided to defer their decision till September 15. Apple argued in the court that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 was identical to their iPad and even backed with an online market research that favored the iPad maker. However, Samsung shot back saying Apple claims are generalized and according to “Apple’s standards every digital photo frame is an iPad” and even asked the court to dismiss the case as it was “too elaborate and complex for summary proceedings.”

The judge has now more than a month to analyze if Samsung infringed on the said patents or not and if the ruling is against Samsung, the injunction against the tablet couldn’t be enforced sooner than October 13.
