Yesterday, the latest court case between Apple and Samsung took place in Germany, and it looks like the German court has ruled in favour of Apple again and Samsung are still not allowed to import the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in to Germany.
The news comes after the the EU ban on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was lifted last week and the judge dealing with the case has scheduled another hearing for the 19th of September, he had the following to say about it.
“There are a lot of alternative ways to design a tablet device, as the market amply shows,” the judge said at a hearing. “We think Apple’s E.U. design rights grant a medium range of protection, if not a broad one.”
It looks like Samsung may have trouble convincing the judge in the case that it should be allowed to sell the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany, and they may have to make some modifications to the tablet to do so, I guess we will have to wait until next month to find out.
