Apple wins patent case

APPLE has won an injunction in a Dutch court to stop Samsung Electronics from marketing three smartphone models in some European countries after alleging a breach of patents.

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

The Apple patent allows for a certain method of scrolling or browsing through photos in some Samsung smartphones, the court added.
