European Galaxy Tab Injunction Partially Lifted

A brief respite for Samsung in its tablet patent infringement battle with Apple abroad.

The German court that issued a preliminary injunction banning Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in most of the European Union partially lifted it Tuesday, allowing the South Korean company to continue selling the device in EU nations outside Germany.

Evidently Samsung questions whether the Dusseldorf District Court has the authority to prevent a foreign company from selling its products outside Germany. And until that issue is resolved, Samsung is free to peddle the 10.1 again, as long it’s not produced or distributed by its German unit, which is still governed by the original injunction.

The Dusseldorf District Court is scheduled to hear Samsung’s appeal on August 25, at which time it could reinstitute the injunction or lift it entirely.
