Dutch court finds rounded corners on Samsung tablets don't infringe on Apple's design
In the U.S., Apple owns patent Patent number D670,286 issued by the USPTO for "the ornamental design for a portable display device," which basically covers a rectangular device with a screen and rounded corners. The U.S. patent does not offer Apple protection in the Hague. Samsung issued a statement that said that it does not feel that Apple was the first company to use rounded corners, essentially stating that prior art should invalidate any patent Apple has received for the design.
