Samsung said in a statement that it continues to believe the rectangular tablet shape is not Apple's to own:
We welcome the court's judgement, which reaffirmed our position that our Galaxy Tab products do not infringe Apple's registered design right.
We continue to believe that Apple was not the first to design a tablet with a rectangular shape and rounded corners and that the origins of Apple's registered design features can be found in numerous examples of prior art.
Should Apple continue to make excessive legal claims in other countries based on such generic designs, innovation in the industry could be harmed and consumer choice unduly limited.
