Apple versus Samsung case? You know, the one with the patents? Okay, well while these disputes are not rare, they do occasionally finally get decided upon, and today is such a day. A District Court in the Hague, Holland, has ruled that some of Apple's older iPads (versions one and two) and iPhones (3G, 3Gs, and 4) violate one of the Korean firm's 3G patents. This comes after initially shooting down Samsung's attempts to take Apple's devices off of shelves. Todays ruling regards European Patent EP1188269, which protects "Apparatus for encoding a transport format combination indicator for a communications system." Dutch site WebWereld.nl reports that the court ruled that the two tech giants try and reach a compensatory deal. There is no talk of a sales ban at this time.
