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'm not sure I understand. So the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet I bought recently in England wasn't a permitted purchase? Perhaps because the UK is not part of the EU we can do what we like rather than have the fourth reich tell us what to do?

It was just an import ban, devices that had already been imported could still be sold. (And the UK is a part of the EU btw.)
