Apple v Samsung - The Trial

This Kat's enthusiasm for the litigation between Apple and Samsung about tablet computers - the rather rare beast of alleged infringement of a (Community) Registered Design - is only slightly tempered by the nagging suspicion that no-one else really cares.

In the hope that he is wrong, he just wants to let his readers know that the trial itself has now been announced - an expedited trial date was originally ordered by Mann J, and, in the subsequent appeal, the Court of Appeal ordered that this date be adhered to.

The trial is down to be heard by His Honour Judge Birss, sitting as a Judge of the High Court, (not the Patents County Court), on Monday 18 June at 10.30 in Court 6.  This Kat won't be able to be there, but if any interested observers are, he would be interested for any commentary.

The picture has no relation to this post, but instructs the reader to beware the cat.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
