Samsung Tablet Ban lifted in EU except Germany

Following the preliminary injunction given to Samsung banning sales of its 10.1 ” tablet across Europe , the Dusseldorf based court has reverted on its order. Apple claims that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a copy of the Apple iPad in the design department.

Samsung on the other hand claims that while its German affiliate ie Samsung GmBH is not allowed to sell the tablet but the Korean company certainly can. Hence sales of the tablet will now continue in all of Europe except Germany.  The next court date has been set at 25th August where Samsung is expected to explain why its tablet should be allowed to go on sale in Germany as well.
