The Apple vs Samsung story has added another page to the book, this time in Netherlands. Apple won another trial with a patent that refers to the bounce-back effect showed on the screen when you scroll a page and reach the end. The patent is called the rubber banding patent.

This patent infringement happens only for devices running Android 2.2.1 and later, while the newer versions have had the bounce back effect replaced with a blue glow. So Apple sued against the devices that didn’t receive an update to the newer versions.

Samsung has been given 8 weeks to repair this issue, meaning to update all devices with a version that replaces the iOS copied effect. If Samsung doesn’t comply with the court ruling in 8 weeks, it will have to pay 100.000 EUR per day until all the Galaxy devices infringing the patent are modified.

Now Samsung has to update all their Froyo and Gingerbread devices with the blue glow effect or else these devices will be banned from the country.
