Apple faced a legal setback in the Netherlands when a Dutch court ruled that Samsung’s tablets and smartphones do not infringe on Apple’s multitouch patents. This decision reaffirms an earlier, preliminary non-infringement ruling in a case that was heard in August 2011. The Dutch legal decision also mirrors those made in Germany and the UK. In the UK case against HTC, the judge found that there was no infringement and ruled that the multitouch patent was invalid.
