Apple fails to win ban on Tab 10.1N, Nexus in Germany

Apple has lost its bid for a preliminary ban on sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1N and Galaxy Nexus in Germany. Bloomberg reports that the Munich Regional Court rejected the motion today in one of many patent disputes between the two companies. “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,” Judge Andreas Mueller said when delivering the decision. As noted in the article, the ruling comes just one day after a separate German court upheld a sales ban on Samsung’s original Galaxy Tab 10.1 model; the 10.1N is a modified version, created by the company to circumvent the sales ban.
