Last week we brought you news about Apple’s injunction against Samsung banning them from importing their new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 into all European countries. Well luckily for Samsung an announcement has been released stating that Apples injunction, banning Samsung selling their Galaxy Tab 10.1 across Europe has now been temporarily lifted in all European Countries except Germany. Where the injunction against Samsung Electronics GmbH, a German subsidiary of Samsung still stands.
No details have been released as yet to why there has been a U-turn within the Düsseldorf district court about the applied injunction. But the lifting of the ban until after Samsung’s August 25th appeal hearing is good news for Samsung.
As explained reasons behind the change of decision are still unknown, but it is thought the reason is unlikely to be linked to the misleading images provided by Apple of the Tab 10.1 submitted for the case we featured this morning, and maybe down to confusions in language around “establishments” and “subsidiaries” between German and English, prompting the initial preliminary injunction.
As more information becomes available behind the reasons why the ban was lifted, as always we will keep you updated.
