Apple wins US Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban

Apple has won a preliminary sales injunction against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the US, the biggest blow so far in the two company's ongoing patent war. The ban on US sales of the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 - not, though, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 we reviewed last month - granted by US District Judge Lucy Koh on Tuesday evening was justified by the similarity of the tablet's appearance to iPad design patents Apple holds. Apple must post a $2.6m bond to enact the injunction.

Apple files for Samsung Tab ban in USA

The Samsung legal team is defending itself this week against a potential Apple-led ban of their Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, this just three days before court-moderated settlement talks between the two manufacturers. This motion is being filed by Apple after a partially successful appeal was won by Apple on U.S. Patent No. D504,889 which has the Galaxy Tab 10.1 infringing on the iPad enough that the court may ban (temporarily or indefinitely) the Samsung tablet from sale here in the United States. At the moment Apple has won its preliminary injunction motion so it is quite likely that Judge Lucy Koh will move forward without another hearing and will ban the tablet temporarily.

Apple jabs new Samsung Tab in Germany

Apple jabs new Samsung Tab in Germany

It appears that Apple is not satisfied with the changes Samsung has made to its Galaxy Tab line over in Germany this month as the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, modified from the 10.1 with no N, still infringes on the iPad's form and purpose - so they say. This same claim for the original Galaxy Tab has already taken hold in some other parts of the world and Apple has indeed succeeding in banning the 10.1 version of Samsung's tablet line for brief periods of time in the past - this time though, it's after Samsung took steps to avoid such a suit specifically. Will the Tab 10.1N, with its front-facing speakers and all, be able to avoid the Apple hammer in Deutschland?

Apple loses sales ban attempt against tweaked Galaxy Tab 10.1N

Apple's attempts to ban Samsung's redesigned Galaxy Tab 10.1N in Germany, along with the Galaxy Nexus, have failed, with the courts ruling that Apple's touchscreen patent was likely to be revoked in short order.

Apple loses Dutch Samsung tablet ban bid

Apple loses Dutch Samsung tablet ban bid

Apple's bid to have sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 blocked in the Netherlands has failed today, with a Dutch appeals court dismissing Apple's claims of IP infringement by the Android tablet. The ruling - released in Dutch - found that while Apple's tablet design patent 000181607 is still valid, prior art including HP Compaq's tc1000 and the 1994 Knight Ridder concept meant the Cupertino company's design rights are very narrow.
