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.”
