BBC has twisted the Dutch court decision in a way that sounds like the court has banned the sale of Samsung Galaxy Tab in Europe, which is incorrect.
Samsung has been banned from selling three models of its Galaxy smartphones in a number of European countries.
Wrong. The court has given Samsung seven weeks time to fix the issues related to one of the patents. The court has rejected all other patents. The patent in question is related to the way photos are shown on these phones. Additionally, the patent is related only to Android 2.3 and doesn't affect Android 3.0. The issues is minor and can be easily circumvented. Seven weeks time is more than enough for Samsung to fix the software related issue.
'NOTE: Samsung is *allowed* to sell the phones. The ban will be imposed *only* after seven weeks that too if Samsung fails to circumvent the minor patent.
What BBC did not highlight was that the court has rejected all of Apple's claims related to the iPad. BBC also did not highlight that Samsung is free to sell its Galaxy Tab in Europe.
Is BBC damaging Samsung and misleading customers?
The headlines like these will only try to damage sales of Samsung phones without any reason. An ill-informed reader will refrain from buying Samsung Galaxy phones thinking it is banned, as the BBC story incorrectly states.
Why is BBC twisting the story in favour of Apple?
