Apple has scored a huge win against Samsung in its patent infringement suit. A preliminary injunction was just granted in Europe preventing the Samsung Galaxy Series smartphones from being sold in Europe which goes into effect October 13th. The ruling only affects the smartphones in the Galaxy S line and not the tablets.
A German court separately found that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was infringing on patents for Apple’s iPad as well. Sales of the 10.1 Tab were blocked in Europe initially but later revised to only apply to Germany.
This is a huge win for Apple since its initial suit against Samsung earlier this year.
