Apple has struck a major blow against Samsung’s ambitions in the tablet space, after a German court granted the company a preliminary injunction against the sale and marketing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 across the EU. A judge in the Regional Court of Dusseldorf backed Apple’s claim that the Android device infringes on its iPad patents and trademarks. The device has thus been whipped off the shelves everywhere in the EU apart from the Netherlands (where a separate case is being heard). “It’s no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging,” says Apple’s spokesperson. “This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.” Samsung says it is “disappointed with the court’s decision and we intend to act immediately to defend our intellectual property rights”, adding that “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.” Source: Telegraph Source: TheNextWeb
