Apple Wins Ban of Galaxy Tab 7.7 in Europe


Apple has managed to have Samsung’s Galaxy Tab banned in Europe. This is a major win for Apple, but a major loss for technology and consumers.

Apparently, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 infringed on Apple drawings dating back to 2004.

Samsung had something to say about the banning:

“Should Apple continue to make legal claims based on such a generic design patent, design innovation and progress in the industry could be restricted.”

It’s a shame that things have to come to this—companies suing companies to ban products.
