Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 injunction lifted across Europe
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 UK sales continue after the injuction which followed an Apple lawsuit is lifted
The injunction preventing Samsung selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to European markets has been partly lifted with the lawsuit disbanded outside of Germany.
Following the ruling by the Dusseldorf Regional Court last week saw the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned across the European Union, the continental blanket ban has been lifted with the court deemed not to have the power to cease sales of the tablet outside of Germany.
The latest twist in a longstanding legal battle between Apple and Samsung, the most recent ruling will see the UK, for the time being, once again allowed to buy and sell the recently launch Android powered tablet.
“Samsung welcomes the Dusseldorf District Court's decision to suspend the pan-European preliminary injunction against the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1,” a spokesperson for Samsung told T3.
“Samsung is fully committed to providing our innovative mobile devices to the market without disruption, and ensuring that consumers have a wider selection of innovative products to choose from. We look forward to the opportunity to reassert our intellectual property rights at the hearing scheduled on August 25.”
