European Ban on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Partially Lifted by German Court
The weird case of the European ban on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1
has taken another twist today, with the same German court partially lifting the ban – and allowing Samsung to continue selling its tablet across Europe. But still not in Germany.
According to the WSJ
, the German court was concerned that it was over-stepping its powers in banning a Korean product from being shipped and marketed across the entire EU, so the ban is gone – although it still remains in place in Germany alone, with Samsung’s German unit not allowed to ship the tablet. A hearing is still scheduled for August 25th for Samsung to appeal the ban, though it has been relegated to a much smaller region.
