London, Oct 19 (ANI): Tech giant Apple lost its patent case against Samsung in an appeals court in London after a judge ruled that the Korean electronics manufacturer's Galaxy tablet does not copy the iPad's design.
London's Court of Appeal upheld a previous decision that said Samsung's Galaxy tablet did not infringe upon Apple's patents.
According to the Telegraph,, it said there were similarities between the two devices, but that Samsung had not infringed Apple's design, in part because its products were "not as cool".
Apple had earlier argued that, in finding Samsung had not infringed its design, the trial judge had place too much emphasis on differences between the design of the back of Galaxy Tab range and the back of the iPad.
Last month a judge ordered Apple to post the court's decision on its UK website for six months.
Apple was asked to take out adverts in various national newspapers and magazines stating that Samsung's Galaxy Tablet computers had not infringed its copyright.
The two tech firms are currently battling each other in a series of patent lawsuits around the world, including a case revolving around mobile phones in the US. (ANI)
