That's the point I tried to drive home earlier. The Tab didn't get a marketplace ban because it was too similar to the iPad. The problem was it was too close to the drawings claimed in the referenced Design Patent. Apple's claim that it's iPad was similar to the drawings had nothing to do with the judge's decision. The infringement was based only on the drawings.
yep...and that's the bigger problem that these people fail to see...
so, at least in Germany, you can design something one way, but as long as you draw it up in a bunch of other ways you can get an injunction to your hearts content limited to only your imagination.
ISN'T THAT AWESOME!!!!???
PS. where do I look up those design patents you listed?
