Samsung clear to carry on selling Galaxy Tab

Simon Quicke

Samsung can carry on with sales of its Galaxy Tab 10.1 after a German court made a decision to lift a ban that it had imposed in a response to an Apple patent dispute.

The sales ban still holds in Germany but in other parts of the European Union it has been temporarily lifted while the Regional Court in Dusseldorf works out if its initial response was appropriate.

The patent dispute has been running since April and when the ban was announced earlier this week there was an immediate response from some tecl retailers to announce they would not be stocking the product.

But confusion is set to continue as the temporary suspension of the ban starts and Samsung pushes to make that situation permanent when it gets its appeal against the initial injunction heard next week.
