Earlier this month we reported that Apple had been granted a preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, preventing the device from being distributed in most of the European Union. This was later suspended; possibly because the German court didn’t have the authority to affect a South Korean company’s actions outside Germany. However, the German injunction remained.
Düsseldorf Regional Court has now upheld the injunction within Germany (and has lifted it for markets outside Germany). In legal terms, this is still a preliminary injunction; the next hearing is set for 9th September.
