The Patent Troll Claims Another Victim

Samsung pulled from IFA trade show in Germany, their latest tablet. The Galaxy Tab 7.7. This ofcourse after the PatentTroll Inc. (AAPL) won a second injunction blocking the tablet from German markets. This comes after the ban in the EU of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Again, a legal victory of the PatentTroll Inc. (AAPL).

“Samsung respects the court’s decision,” Chung said, adding that the company believes it “severely limits consumer choice in Germany.” Samsung will pursue all available options, including legal action, to defend its intellectual property rights, he said.

Samsung and Apple, maker of the iPad, are involved in legal disputes across three continents, as Apple -- also one of the biggest customers for the South Korean manufacturer’s chips and displays -- claims the Galaxy devices copied its iPhone and iPad. Last month, the Dusseldorf Regional Court granted Apple a temporary sales ban on the earlier Galaxy Tab 10.1 model in 26 of the 27 European Union member countries.
