Apple wins European injunction against Samsung smartphones

It’s reported that a court in the Netherlands has issued a preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy S II and Samsung Ace smartphones. The decision follows a request by Apple and concerns a single software patent involving the photo gallery on phones. The legal order affects Samsung subsidiaries registered in the Netherlands, from where Samsung apparently manages much of its European distribution.

This decision will take effect in seven weeks, giving Samsung almost two months to either rearrange its European logistics or modify its software.

It doesn’t involve the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which was named in the original version of the legal action. A number of other patent claims were rejected.
