Consistency, It Would Be Nice To Get Some

Within the last week two European courts have ruled in Apple v Samsung cases, apparently furnished with the same evidence and decision to make, yet their rulings are so different as to defy belief.

In brief the Dutch case ruled that Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 did not infringe Apple's community design patent and could therefore continue to make it's way into Europe through Dutch ports whilst a court in Germany decided that it did and barred sales of the Tab until 9th September pending further hearings.

Setting aside the ridiculous nature of the community design patent, both these cases technically set a precedent that should apply across the European Union. 

Good luck with that one then!
