Apple v. Samsung preliminary injunction by Dutch court on 24 August 2011

This is one of the cases from the Samsung v. Apple lawsuits worldwide overview.

Dutch court somewhat upholds software patent?


This ruling is only a "preliminary injunction", the result of request for a fast decision, so it carries a little less weight in terms of creating case law.

A Dutch court ruled that Apple's patent EP2,059,868, on "method of scrolling", was violated by Samsung.


  • Apple accused Samsung of violating three patents:
    • EP2,059,868 - The judge ruled that Samsung violated this patent (with the S and SII Galaxy Tabs, but not the 10.1)
    • EP1,964,022 - Invalidated by the judge
    • EP2,098,948 - The judge ruled that Samsung didn't violate this patent
