A German ban on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 was expanded Tuesday to include the entire European Union. Samsung, however, can continue to sell its Galaxy Tab 10.1N tablet in the region, the court said. Previously, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 was only banned in Germany for violating an Apple design patent. The Dusseldorf Higher Regional Court, however, expanded that to include all EU member states. “Samsung is disappointed with the court’s ruling. We will continue to take all available measures, including legal action, to protect our intellectual property rights and defend against Apple’s claims to ensure our products remain available to consumers throughout the European Union,” a Samsung spokeswoman said.
