Samsung Electronics Co. will go to court on August 25 to appeal an earlier decision banning the South Korean technology giant from selling its Galaxy tablet computer in most of the European Union as what has turned into a global clash for intellectual property rights furies on.
The local court of Duesseldorf earlier this month subjected a preliminary injunction, made at the request of Apple Inc. (AAPL), hindering Samsung from dealing out its Galaxy Tab 10.1 touchscreen tablet throughout mainly of Europe, except the Netherlands.
The device, released earlier this summer, and which runs on Google Inc.’s (GOOG) Android working system, is extensively regarded as to be the most capable contestant to Apple’s iPad which has conquered the market since its discharge last year. Apple claims Samsung copied its products.
Apple sued Samsung in a California court in April claiming the South Korean producer infringed on its copyrights and slavishly imitated its portrait. Authorized battles among the Cupertino, California, corporation and Samsung have since circled the globe with filings in assorted Asian and European countries together with the International Trade Commission.
