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.
