Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 banned in the EU

Apple scored a partial victory Tuesday in a German court in its battle with Samsung over tablet computers, gaining a declaration that Samsung cannot sell the 7.7-inch version of its Galaxy Tab series anywhere in the European Union.

However the appeals court in Dusseldorf upheld a lower-court ruling denying to Apple a Germany-wide ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1N, a larger device which Samsung re-modelled for the European market to side-step the legal challenges.

US-based Apple accuses the South Korean company of copying the look and feel of its best-selling iPad. Apple was appealing after losing its case in February in a German state court. The companies are at odds worldwide over patents and legally registered designs
