A Dutch court has ruled that Samsung's Galaxy tablets don't infringe on the design of the iPad, according to a brief AllThingsD report.

Last October, a British court ruled that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab tablets don’t infringe Apple’s design patents; now a Dutch court has found the same thing. On Wednesday, a district court in the Hague ruled that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9, and Galaxy Tab 7.7 don’t infringe Apple’s registered design for the iPad. While the devices might share a similar rectangular shape with rounded corners, the overall impression the present is different, the court said.

In the U.K. Apple was forced to run ads stating that Samsung did not copy its registered tablet designs on its website and in newspapers.

Joe, Apple may suck. One person may be loser when they buy apple products, but all the millions who have brought it are not losers and fools. Joey, you are correct to the point people cannot afford. But these days apple has been acting a little too stupid, and still could not justify why they are acting that way. So the debate will go on. BTW Joe, Apple has products which are stable and rugged, and that is what you need at the end of the day
