Apple’s EU-wide Injunction against Galaxy Tablet

August 9, 2011

According to reports from a leading IP blogger – {FOSS Patents:}, a court in Dusseldorf has granted Apple a preliminary injunction which applies throughout the EU (bar the Netherlands, where separate litigation is in progress). The injunction prohibits Samsung from distributing its Galaxy Tab 10.1. A major marketing campaign for the Tab 10.1 was well underway.

The FOSS Patents site’s reports, which are supplemented by updates of 10 August, are fuller than those available from the BBC and other sources. Since the SCL’s site struggles in German, readers are referred to FOSS Patents (which is in English) for further details.
