Appeals judges toss out FTC win: What Qualcomm did to its rivals was 'hypercompetitive, not anticompetitive'


In general, actually. Most judges get confused by things like rounded corners as denoting a copied design - in that example, it was to the extent that the Galaxy S3 (or was it the 4?) was designed in part by the legal team to ensure small things like the corners were not aligned.

Judges understand the law as it relates to the topic. This doesn't give them the ability to understand technology or it's impact in society.
