A Pyrrhic Victory?

In the British Samsung case. Is producing a poor product defense against infringement?

It may not have been the words Samsung wanted to hear, but they got it the outcome it wanted. A British judge ruled Monday that Samsung’s tablets do not infringe on the design of the iPad, the Guardian reported, because, “They are not as cool.”

The real progress seems to be in rolling back excessively generic claims, which have been a profit center (and economy-wide welfare loss) for patent trolls.
