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.
