Not a good day for Apple. First, the Australian court has lifted the Australian sales ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Second the Motorola has won an injunction against Apple’s 3G products in Germany. What else is there to say at this point? Software and design patents still suck, even if karma is a female dog.

Apple has no further options for appeal in Australia. They will also be required to pay all of Samsung’s legal costs (Australian courts nearly always award damages to against losing plaintiffs.)
From the BBC article:
Apparently Motorola did seek such an injunction, and a preliminary injunction has been granted.
