Patent Wars: Apple Denied Injunction Against Samsung In Munich

The saga of patent wars between Samsung and Apple continues. This time a Munich judge has denied a preliminary injunction against Samsung and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1n.

Apple was hoping that their injunction against the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1n would be granted because Munich has a history of granting injunctions. Apple was successful in getting one injunction granted against Samsung and the original Galaxy Tab 10.1. That was why Samsung went back and made modifications to this new model that is now in question.

The presiding judge in Munich said:
“Samsung has shown that it is more likely than not that the patent will be revoked because of a technology that was already on the market before the intellectual property had been filed for protection.”
