A German court has today (25 August) upheld an injunction requested by Apple to close Samsung from selling its flagship tablet, the Samsung World Tab 10.1, in Germany.
Despite attempts from Samsung to offer the injunction dropped, the Dusseldorf court ruled in Apple’s favour and rejected the request.
What is the news might be the most recent increase in the ongoing patent fight between Apple and Samsung.
Laptop computer giant punished Samsung in April this year for breach of patents and trademarks. The firm has accused Samsung of copying the functionality and style of their legendary iPad and apple apple iphone products inside their World tablet and smartphone range.
Despite the fact that court initially granted Apple a short injunction to close Samsung World Tab 10.1 shipping across all EU nations except holland, it later lifted the injunction since it was apparently unsure whether it is jurisdiction extended to all or any 27 member states.
The EU-wide stop appeared to become lifted after Samsung mentioned the look of the World Tab happen to be elevated making it look a great deal a lot more like the iPad.
Each side will have to hold about before the ultimate ruling due to occur on 9 September to uncover if Apple’s attempts to enforce a complete stop of sales in the Samsung World Tab 10.1 within the EU are actually effective.
