After questioning if it was even legal for a German court to ban the sale of a South Korean import throughout Europe, the Dusseldorf regional court has partially lifted their injunction on Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales. The ban remains in place throughout Germany, but the slate can now be sold in all other parts of the European Union. The news comes a day after it was revealed that evidence in the case may have been altered in a misleading way (whether intentionally or not), though it is unclear if the revelation had any impact on the court’s change of heart. A hearing is still scheduled for August 25th for Samsung to appeal the ban, though it has been relegated to a much smaller region.
