German court upholds ban on Samsung's 10.1 Tablet in Germany



Samsung Electronics lost a bid to overturn a ruling barring its local unit from selling its Galaxy 10.1 tablets in Germany, handing a symbolic legal victory to Apple Inc in efforts to keep its lead spot in the tablet computer market.

The smaller Galaxy Tab 8.9, meanwhile, was also added to the list of banned Samsung products in Germany.

A ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been in effect since August, when a Dusseldorf court blocked the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe, with the exception of the Netherlands. Amidst questions over whether a German court had the right to ban a Korean company from selling its wares outside Germany, the court later tightened its ruling and only applied the ban to sales within Germany.

Apple has claimed the Galaxy line of mobile phones and tablets "slavishly" copied the iPhone and iPad and has sued the Korean company in the United States, Australia, Japan and Korea as well as in Europe.

Since then, several countries including the Netherlands, the United States and Australia have decided to allow Samsung to sell the Galaxy tablet.But Samsung Galaxy 10.1 banned in Germany.

In September, Apple was successful in an attempt to introduce a sales ban for the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Following the ruling, Samsung appealed and re-modified its product, introducing the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, in order avoid the infringements and gain clearance for sale in Germany.
