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.

No. They can't. They are enforcing the EU-wide policy that is already in place.

Judge's decisions can be appealed to OHIM (oami.europa.eu) or EU Court of Justice. OHIM will take less time, but CoJ will have a properly reviewed decision.
