Apple’s second attempt to patent iPad’s design in Russia doesn’t land

Apple has been trying to patent its iPad design in Russia for the past two years, but the Russian Patent Office (Rospatent) refused to grant the patent to the Cupertino business back in April. Apple then appealed to the Russian Chamber for Patent Disputes, who then rejected the appeal.

The problem lies with the content of Apple’s patent schematic, which simply shows a tablet with rounded edges and a button under a screen, which lies on a flat glass front. Rospatent believes this is “traditional for modern communication devices” and “Inconspicuous differences in dimensions, screen size, and buttons layout are not essential distinction criteria.”

Rospatent thinks that the schematic has no original design features, and has proved to be far less pro-Apple than the US, that immediately handed the patent over to the world’s most valuable company.
