Apple Wins German Ban on Samsung Tablet

Samsung will still be able to sell the Galaxy Tab in other European countries.

Bloomberg: A German court has upheld the temporary ban on sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab in that country, saying that it looks too much like Apple's iPad. “The crucial issue was whether the Galaxy tablet looked like the drawings registered as a design right,” said the judge in the case. “Also, our case had nothing to do with trademarks or patents for technology.”

Although Apple sought to ban the product in other EU countries as well, the ban will only apply in Germany. Samsung said it will appeal the decision.
