Samsung says it doesn’t infringe on Apple’s patents because Android’s multi touch sucks
The big battle between Sammy and Apple in the United States is mostly over and it doesn’t directly affect Australia. However, that doesn’t mean that the two tech giants aren’t still going at it all around the globe. Over in Netherlands (oh what a great place that is) Apple has been stating that Samsung are – wait for it – infringing on their patents.
This time it isn’t about a rectangle with curved edges or about the colour of icons. This time Apple are suing Samsung about the ”touch event model” which helps to prevent mistaken presses on a touch screen with a second finger.
So, Samsung’s defence of saying that they didn’t copy didn’t work too well over the States. What can they do different now? Well, Samsung has thrown Android under the train and stated that Android’s multi touch features simply don’t do this feature, which iOS does automatically, and thus can’t be sued for it.
Interesting move Samsung. You know what, I like a bit of attitude.
