In a move that follows a number of jurisdictions — barring Apple’s home courts of California and Germany — the UK High Court, in a decision handed down yesterday, ruled that although there is indeed similarity between Samsung’s tablet and Apple’s patents, there is no actual infringement.
This is a victory over stifling patents that hinder legitimate innovation. Sir Robin Jacob criticised Apples ‘over wide’ patent claims.
UK: With the UK’s specialised technology, patent and now small patent track, the UK court system provides a faster and more cost-effective mode of dealing with technology and intellectual property claims.
