Yesterday we mentioned the bad news in terms of Europe, Samsung and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. And for those who missed that post, Samsung has been told by the courts that they will have to stop selling the Honeycomb running tablet throughout Europe with one exception, the Netherlands. In short, as many would have guessed, this was probably not the best news for Samsung to get. Especially so soon after the troubles they were having in Australia. Anyway, that being said, it looks like a representative from Samsung has stepped forward with an official statement.
Samsung is disappointed with the court’s decision and we intend to act immediately to defend our intellectual property rights through the ongoing legal proceedings in Germany and will continue to actively defend these rights throughout the world.
The request for injunction was filed with no notice to Samsung, and the order was issued without any hearing or presentation of evidence from Samsung.
We will take all necessary measures to ensure Samsung’s innovative mobile communications devices are available to customers in Europe and around the world.
This decision by the court in Germany in no way influences other legal proceedings filed with the courts in Europe and elsewhere.” – Kim Titus
