EU To Investigate Apple And Samsung

There's an air of inevitability about this one, as the EU announces that it will investigate the current global patent battle between Apple and Samsung for what they believe are anti-competitive practices.

Apple's tactics in defending the iPad and iPhone have been particularly underhand and indefensible. The recent Netherlands case that found that the Galaxy S2 infringed in a very minor way in how the gallery scrolled is a perfect example of the inappropriate nature of these patents.

Hopefully the EU will bin the lot of them and force Apple to compete on features  rather than in the  courts...
