Apple Used Misleading Photo to Ban Sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Apple either unknowingly used a wrong image of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 or intentionally altered the image to acquire an import ban against Samsung in Europe.
According to TechCrunch, the image was not only cropped but also had its aspect ratio modified to make the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 look wider. In addition, the Samsung logo was deliberately removed. Apple then argued in its case that the "overall appearance" of the Samsung tablet looked "practically identical" to its iPad 2.
Whether it is a case of a wrong image or a strategy to prevent Samsung from affecting its iPad 2 sales in Europe, the use of flawed evidence in court does not reflect well on Apple. It is noteworthy to mention that Samsung never saw it coming and did not have the chance to defend itself. It will be interesting to see how Samsung responds to this news.
