In the UK, Judge Briss ruled that Apple should apologise to Samsung by running ads on its website and top publications stating the Korean firm did not copy the iPad with its Galaxy Tablets. This would have been a serious blow to the Cupertino firm, but Apple’s legal team won an appeal against the unusual and rather amusing ruling.
Apple’s legal team in the UK was successful in trying to convince the court to overturn the ruling that would have Apple run an ad of a rival’s product. Although the ruling did not go through, we can’t be certain if other cases in various places around the world will have the same outcome.
We’re you curious to see what Apple would have to say on their ad if the ruling went through? We know we were.
CNET reports that Apple sent ‘menacing’ (according to Samsung) letters to retailers, warning them against selling banned Samsung products before the ban was stayed.
Apple sent a letter to two retailers in California concerning the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The letter reads, “Apple thus believes that the order extends to you because you may be selling, offering to sell, or importing the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer.
“Please comply with the order by ceasing immediately to engage in any of the specified acts (e.g., importing, offering to sell, or selling within the United States) in connection with the Galaxy Tab 10.1.”
FOSS Patents reports that another letter was sent out to retailers on selling the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The letter was sent three days before the ban in the US was stayed.
Honestly, Apple should just focus on creating more innovative devices rather than trying to ban its rival’s products. It’s starting to look as if Apple’s only option to get ahead of the competition is to file one injunction after another.
It looks like German Galaxy Tab 10.1 enthusiasts no longer have to go out of the country to get their hands on Samsung’s tablet. The Korean tech giant has modified its 10 inch tablet to satisfy the German injunction, which banned the sale of the tablet last September.
We’re not exactly sure what’s different between the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 10.1N version. The N version seems to come with a black bezel, which expands towards the metal rim of the tablet. The new variant appears on a German online retailer’s website, which will be delivered to German users within two to four shipping days. Found on the bottom of the listing is a text that reads, “Galaxy Tab is back!”
Currently, the courtroom drama between Apple and Samsung in Germany rages on, with Apple claiming that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 infringes Apple’s patents on the iPad. However, with the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, Germans can now get a taste of Samsung’s tablet, which rivals the iPad 2. Well, not unless Apple finds another reason to get the new version banned from sale in Germany. If this is the case, they’d have to smuggle a tablet purchased from another country just to enjoy an alternative to the iPad 2.
