Samsung and Apple are currently battling it out in a court case in the US, which is scheduled to take place later this month, a number of Samsung devices have been banned from sale before the case, which include the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and the Galaxy Nexus, although the Galaxy Nexus is now back on sale with modified software.
Now according to Foss Patents, Apple has been contacting a number of retailers in the US, and demanding that they remove the banned Samsung devices from their store shelves.
Apple has apparently sent a letter to various mobile carriers and also retailers, and Samsung doesn’t seem very pleased about it, and are claiming that:-
“Apple’s menacing letters greatly overreach, incorrectly claiming that third-party retailers are subject to the prohibitions of the preliminary injunction, which they clearly are not”. In Samsung’s opinion, “they are permitted to sell their existing inventory, even without a stay”.
It would appear that some retailers are still selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, even though the device has been banned from sale in the US, ahead of the court case.
