Today, the same court upheld that injunction which means the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is banned from any sales in the country. Presiding Judge Johanna Brueckner-Hofmann said the following when delivering the verdict:
“The court is of the opinion that Apple’s minimalistic design isn’t the only technical solution to make a tablet computer, other designs are possible. For the informed customer there remains the predominant overall impression that the device looks like the design Apple has protected in Europe.”
The judge said the court didn’t compare the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with the actual iPad, but instead focused on a design Apple filed with the European Union intellectual property agency in Spain.
