Evidence from outer Space - Apple v. Samsung

In a recent post, I have discussed the preliminary incjunction granted against Samsung based on Apple's community design rights.

Florian Müller of FOSS Patents has reported on the evidence provided for invalidating Apple's righs.

Actually, some of the references are faily old: one is taken from the 70's TV series "The Tomorrow Poeple" and shows an astronaut walking around with a kind of Tablet PC and the other is taken form Stanley Kubrick's classic "2001 - The Space Odyssey" and shows two astronauts having lunch while playing with their tablet PC.

For me, this attack is not very convincing not only because of the blurriness of the prictures but rather because it appears to mistake the technical concept of the Tablet PC with its design.
