A German court has rejected a request from Apple to block sales of Samsung’s Galaxy 10.1N tablet in Germany. Citing the news agency dapd, the AP reports that a state court in Duesseldorf rejected Apple’s request for an injunction barring sales of the tablet, which is itself a modified version of the Galaxy 10.1 tablet that Samsung is barred from selling in Germany due to its similarity to the iPad. This latest ruling stated that Samsung had changed the design to the extent that the 10.1N did not breach Apple’s rights or German competition laws.
