28804743 story Apple Loses German Court Bid To Ban Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1N, Nexus Phone 193 193 Posted by samzenpus on Friday February 03, 2012 @06:33AM from the and-the-hits-keep-coming dept. chrb writes "Apple has failed to get a patent ban on Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1N and the Nexus phone in Germany. Presiding Judge Andreas Mueller stated, 'Samsung has shown that it is more likely than not that the patent will be revoked because of a technology that was already on the market before the intellectual property had been filed for protection.' The patent in question covered list scrolling and document translation, scaling, and rotation on a touch-screen display. This news follows the recent Appeals court ruling that upheld the original Galaxy Tab 10.1 ban."
