Apple, Samsung EU tablet sale case continues

Apple and Samsung have jointly won temporary victories in the German case over Samsung's Galaxy 10.1 tablet computer sales in the European Union, Bloomberg has reported. They will try to turn the court's conflicted position to their advantage when judges hear oral arguments over the Korean company's product this week. The Dusseldorf Regional Court on August 9 granted Apple, the maker of the iPad, a sales ban against Samsung's Galaxy 10.1 tablet in 26 of the 27 EU member countries, only to then scale back its effects a week later over jurisdictional doubts.
