It looks like Samsung may have a problem in Europe with their new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, as a court in Germany has granted Apple an injunction, which will stop Samsung distributing the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the European Union.
It seems that the only country which is exempt from the ruling is the Netherlands, so that would mean that the rest of Europe, included the UK is effected, and Samsung has released the following statement.
Samsung is disappointed with the court’s decision and we intend to act immediately to defend our intellectual property rights through the ongoing legal proceedings in Germany and will continue to actively defend these rights throughout the world.
The request for injunction was filed with no notice to Samsung, and the order was issued without any hearing or presentation of evidence from Samsung.
We will take all necessary measures to ensure Samsung’s innovative mobile communications devices are available to customers in Europe and around the world.
This decision by the court in Germany in no way influences other legal proceedings filed with the courts in Europe and elsewhere.
We can expect some sort of appeal from Samsung on this as we doubt they would let Apple stop them selling their new Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Europe without a fight.
