Legal Okay, I didn't see this one coming. German press agency dpa is reporting that Apple has been granted a preliminary injunction barring Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being distributed in the entire European Union except for The Netherlands, over a design patent. Competition at its finest, people, and this is clearly in the interest of consumers. I'm ashamed to be European. Updates in the article now. This iterative update process isn't really working when you've got a gazillion of them.

Kinda like when Intel lawyers went after the NEC V20/V30 which were clones of 286/386. Intel put its foot down and killed with a court order banning Japanese clones. Had they not, there would be a Intel today. A hard lesson when the Japanese flooded the US markets with DRAM chips below market and killed off all the US makers.
