Apple Urges German Court To Bar The Sales Of Samsung’s New Galaxy Tab 10.1N
Ever since Samsung has scored a significant victory over Apple by getting the ban on the sales of Galaxy Tab 10.1N lifted in Australia, Apple is now fighting tooth and nail to get the sales of new Galaxy Tab 10.1 banned in Germany.
This all started with a series of lawsuits that Apple and Samsung filed against each other after Samsung lost in a court battle that resulted in a ban on the sales of Galaxy Tab in Australia. Apple had alleged that the design of Galaxy Tab had been copied from iPad. Samsung lost lawsuits against Apple in various countries.
However, the ban has been lifted in Australia and Galaxy Tab 10.1N will hit markets soon. Samsung has also changed the design of Galaxy Tab 10.1 a little bit to avoid more legal confrontations with Apple. The 10.1N moniker had been added after the changes.
In Germany, a hearing on the petition filed by Apple that seeks a ban on the sales of Galaxy Tab 10.1N, has been scheduled on 22 December 2011. The case would be heard in Dusseldorf Regional Court.
In Germany, Samsung is desperate to release Galaxy Tab 10.1N because Galaxy Tab 10.1 had been banned in Germany in September 2011. According to this ban, the German unit of Samsung cannot sell the Tablet in Germany or in any nation that is a part of European Union.
Samsung has vowed to continue fighting Apple legally, all over the world.
