Another Apple Bid to Ban Samsung Tablet PC Fails

Apple has for the second time failed to win a ban of Samsung Electronics Galaxy 10.1N tablet PC from a German court. Samsung said Thursday the regional court refused a request from the U.S. tech giant.

The court ruled that Galaxy Tab 10.1N is distinctive and does not infringe Apple's intellectual property rights.

The two rivals have been lobbing patent infringement claims against one another since last April and are currently locked in multiple legal battles worldwide.
