A judge in Netherlands’ The Hague has ruled that the Samsung Galaxy S, S II, and Ace infringe on an Apple patent, and has banned their sales in any EU country where the patent in question is valid. iPhoneclub.nl (Translated Link) reports that the ban will take effect in mid-October, and is related to European patent number EP 2058868, which describes scrolling through a picture gallery using finger gestures on a touch screen. Notably, the ban does not include Samsung’s Galaxy Tab tablet computers.
