The German Supreme Court has banned the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 on the European market. This was followed by a year-long patent and rights struggle claimed by technology giant Apple. For supposedly striking resemblance and copying elements of the iPad. Apple has always patented its designs, technologies and innovations in Europe. There was also an indictment against Samsung, which Apple wanted to prevent access to the European market. Samsung apparently sensed that this court would lose, after all, in the end, the model in question had a lot in common with the Apple iPad.
He has prepared a redesigned version of their tablet called Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N, which can be sold on the European market. Of course, Apple has decided to fight him as well, but it is not doing well in the courts yet.
Tab version 7.7 should have stopped selling in Europe. Sellers who have products in stock will have to get rid of them and not continue to supply them. There is not even a system to inform sellers comprehensively that a court in Germany has ruled for the whole of Europe. It is therefore questionable how quickly 7.7 will be lost from the offer of stores in our country.

Frog Wars? Where!
Many shake their heads at the fact that Apple is going so hard against any attempt to copy them. Apple has always felt to be something more. In the interpretations of mobile operators, the Apple product must not be among others, it must have a separate place. Years ago, Czech mobile operators were decently threatening to fail to comply with the conditions, which made some stores desperate (as far as space is concerned). Apple is also aware of its quality, and their computers and innovations have also been copied by Bill Gates and many giants. In this case, it is not a few thousand dollars, but by winning the aforementioned court, Apple saved hundreds of millions, if not equal to hundreds of billions of dollars of potential profit from the sale of its devices annually.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is only possible via the web
The banned Samsung will probably find its way to us only via the internet. Individual imports and, for example, eBay do great wonders in these cases.
