Legal So, the shadiness factor of the German EU-wide injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 seems to continue. Not only has Apple been caught supplying the court with tampered evidence, it now seems the court in Duesseldorf didn't have the authority to ban the Galaxy Tab EU-wide - at least, according to a German court which has just lifted the EU-wide ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

I think it's syntactically correct. The ban is not EU-wide anymore, and the court did not mention any intention to bring an EU-wide ban back, stating to the contrary that it was a mistake.

Well, the ban wasn't European wide anyway, The Netherlands were not included. As sales are still banned in Germany I don't think you can state the ban has been lifted from the entire EU.

It's like telling your dad you cleaned his car and he notices a dirty spot. Germany may not be dirty, but it's a pretty big spot on the European map.

Engaged reports it like this:

"German court lifts ban on some European Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales"

Does seem a rather different situation than Thom reported.

And for what it's worth I don't think Apple should try to ban the Galaxy tab sales.

If you want to be 100% precise, then:
"EU wide ban lifted off Samsung Korea, but still in place for Samsung Germany"

Reflects the fact that EU wide injunction is still in place for Samsung's German subsidiary. However any other EU based subsidiary is free to sell Galaxy Tab.
