The rejection against Apple means that Samsung can chalk up a victory in the ongoing battle between the companies. Dapd, news agency have reported that the state court in Dusseldorf have rejected Apple’s call for an injunction preventing sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1N in Germany.
The ruling says that Samsung have changed the design enough to prevent a breach of Apple’s rights or German competition laws.
