German court rejects Samsung tablet appeal

Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban to remain in force

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Apple's demand that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 be banned from sale in Germany has been once again confirmed by a German court.

The Dusseldorf regional court rejected an attempt by Samsung to overturn the previously imposed ban.

Apple's victory doesn't actually amount to much because Samsung had already pulled the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 from sale and replaced it with the 10.1N, a model altered to avoid the complaints Apple had with the first version.

The tweaks weren't sufficient, in Apple's eyes. The iPad maker filed a fresh lawsuit targeting the 10.1N earlier this month, also with the Dusseldorf Regional Court.

A separate case also dragged five Samsung smartphones into the increasingly bitter legal battle.

The Dusseldorf court has already told Apple that it is unlikely to prevail in the case against the 10.1N, but that's not stopping the California company from trying anyway.

At the heart of the battle are Apple's allegations that Samsung based the look and feel of some of its smartphones and tablets on their popular Apple equivalents. But the fight has since taken in complaints from both sides that each firm's opponent has ridden roughshod over their intellectual property rights.

As lawsuit has been followed by countersuit, the war has spread from the German court to other European nations and beyond to Australia and the US. ®
