Samsung can sell Galaxy Tab 10.1 Tablet in Europe, just not in Germany

German court suddenly finds out that they do not have the authority to ban sales across the entire European Union.

As reported last week, Apple managed to get a German court to ban sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet across Europe. Apple did this not on the ground of patents, but on the design of the iPad. Now the Wall Street Journal reports that the German court as adjusted the ban. Now Samsung can sell the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the European Union, just not in Germany. The court got second thoughts on their authority to put a European-wide ban on a product sold by a South Korean company.

The August 25 hearing is still on, but now it will be just about the German market.

The patent wars and law suits really got out of hands recently. Apple and Samsung have a big war going on. Apple and HTC also trade punches. On top of that Android is under attack from Microsoft, Apple and Oracle. It gets really messy. Yesterday Google made a bold move to protect Android by buying Motorola.
