Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales banned in US

Court stops sales of the manufacturer’s tablet device while a decision is made on Samsung’s patent claim with Apple

Sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the US have been banned by a court in the country as it decides on the outcome of the manufacturer’s patent dispute with Apple.

Apple has claimed that Samsung infringed its design patent and copied the look of its own tablet device, the iPad. The trial for this case, which doesn’t include the Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1), is due to begin in California on July 30.

US District Judge Lucy Koh said: “Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have the right to compete unfairly, by flooding the market with infringing products.”

A federal appeals court had asked the judge to reconsider Apple’s request for an injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 after she had denied the firm’s appeal for a request on the Samsung tablet and its smartphones.

This is the latest legal case between the two companies in relation to claims and counter claims of patent infringement.

Apple had accused Samsung of copying its design and look, but the latter has alleged that the US manufacturer infringed its patents relating to the way mobile handsets and tablets connect to the internet.
