Apple had earlier stopped Samsung to launch their Galaxy tab 10.1 in Europe as Apple said that the tablet infringes various patents. However Samsung has replied back saying that they will take all necessary measures to make sure their intellectual property rights remain intact.
“Samsung is disappointed with the court’s decision and we intend to act immediately to defend our intellectual property rights through the ongoing legal proceedings in Germany and will continue to actively defend these rights throughout the world. The request for injunction was filed with no notice to Samsung, and the order was issued without any hearing or presentation of evidence from Samsung. We will take all necessary measures to ensure Samsung’s innovative mobile communications devices are available to customers in Europe and around the world. This decision by the court in Germany in no way influences other legal proceedings filed with the courts in Europe and elsewhere.”
