German court upholds ban of Samsung Galaxy

A court in the western German city of Dusseldorf has banned the sale and marketing of Samsung's Tab 10.1 tablet in Germany because it too closely resembles Apple's iPad2, AP has reported. The two companies are involved in a series of legal disputes in countries around the world over allegations that each has copied the other's technology. Last month, the German court ruled in favor of Apple, forcing Samsung to withdraw its tablet from the market. Samsung, however, challenged the ban.
