Apple has once again petitioned a court to prematurely block sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet before the conclusion of the companies’ many patent dispute cases.
US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington determined
last week that Apple has to show that it’s likely to win this particular
patent dispute with Samsung, and that Apple is free to pursue preliminary bans on sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
previous request to have Samsung products barred from sale before the
conclusion of court proceedings was denied in December by California
judge Lucy Koh, but the appeals court overturned that ruling.
