German court bans Galaxy Tab 10.1: looks too much like iPad

Apple has won a more stringent ban on Samsung’s Galaxy 10.1 tablet in Germany. On Friday, a Düsseldorf court upheld its previous ban on the device, with Judge Johanna Brueckner-Hofmann ruling that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 looked too much like the iPad Community Design that Apple has registered with the European Union. Samsung has vowed to appeal the decision.

I read an interesting quote this week that summed up what many of Apple’s rivals are currently doing.

Everyone is trying to catch Apple by the tail and Apple just keep changing tails!

We need some of the big players not to simply copy Apples products we need them to also to be innovative.
