Submission + - Apple Loses Tablet Case Against Small Spanish Firm (

Golgafrinchan writes: From the linked article:
A Spanish court this week ruled in favor of a small Valencia-based company in a patent battle against Apple. Cupertino sued the company, Nuevas Tecnologías y Energías Catalá, in November 2010, arguing that its Android-based NT-K tablet (pictured) was too similar in style to the iPad...

Today's decision lifts the injunction, but the ban resulted in sales of less than 200 tablets this year, down from a goal of 15,000, the company told the Journal. As a result, Nuevas filed an antitrust complaint against Apple in August, arguing that what Apple did was "grossly unfair" given its market dominance, the company said in a translated statement. Patent expert Florian Mueller said in a blog post that the company is also suing Apple for monetary damages, lost profits, and "moral damages."

All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
