Samsung Galaxy Tab Banned in European Union

A German court granted Apple a preliminary injunction which bars sales of Samsung’s new ultra thin tablet, the Galaxy Tab, throughout the European Union. This is a massive victory for Apple and setback for Samsung as countries like France, Ireland, Sweden, Italy, Spain, the U.K. and of course Germany will ban sales of the Samsung Tablet immediately.

Apple and Samsung has been caught up in a heated legal battle in which Apple has accused Samsung of infringing on various intellectual property rights and patents on not only the Galaxy Tab but a variety of other devices such as the android powered Galaxy S and S II smartphone. Under German copyright law, Samsung could be fined up to $350,000 for each violation and company management could be imprisoned if infringement continues.

    To the victor goes the spoils. Apple has ever right to take action to protect her copyright and Intellectual property from copycats. Most of these companies are lazy Silicon Valley companies who trimmed training and cut R&D, literally living on Apple’s every rumour.

    Especially Samsung, who is armourer to Apple, supplying most of the components to make the Apple iPad.

    so it is not surprising that this legal action has come to pass. Welcome to the murky world of patent and Intellectual Copyright Infringements!!

    Now they are following Apple MacBook Air with Ultrabooks.

    Everything Apple do them follow, especially as now Google android marketshare is in danger!!

    Retribution for past foibles in which copycats Christmas past got away

    I don’t understand how they could have made such a significant blunder, especially knowing how strict the laws of their country and the International Laws that govern technological rights are.
