Samsung to appeal European block on Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales, report says
Samsung is reportedly planning to issue an appeal of a German court order that blocked sales of its Galaxy Tab 10.1 across Europe, with the exception of the Netherlands.
The South Korean consumer electronics giant will file its appeal Aug. 25 in a Dusseldorf court, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.
This is part of Samsung's international patent fight with Apple: Apple has filed patent infringement suits in courts in the U.S., Europe and Australia, accusing Samsung of ripping off its iPhone and iPad with the look and feel of the Galaxy phone and Galaxy Tab product lines.
The Cupertino, Calif., tech giant has managed to halt Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales in Australia as well.
