Apple's Quest to Stamp out Galaxy Tab Continues

Lora Bentley

Tuesday Apple convinced a court in Germany to issue a preliminary injunction preventing rival Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 in every European country except the Netherlands. So now it's pursuing a similar remedy before a court in The Hague.

 

Reuters reports Apple asked the court to not only enjoin sales of the Samsung device in the Netherlands, but also to block its distribution to Europe through the Netherlands. The judge indicated he will rule on Apple's injunction request by Sept.15.

 

As FOSS Patents' Florian Mueller noted recently, the issues raised at the hearing in The Hague are broader than those previously ruled upon in Germany - probably because "Europe's biggest seaport, Rotterdam, plays a particularly important role to Samsung's European logistics," he said. If the judge decides to issue the injunction, it will be effective four weeks from the date of the ruling.

 

In the meantime, Samsung is appealing the decision of the German court. That hearing is scheduled for Aug. 25, according to the INQUIRER.
