Judge Koh denies Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 injunction stay

Judge Koh denies Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 injunction stayThe Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was recently served a preliminary injunction in the US, thanks to Judge Lucy Koh.

As we heard a few days ago, there was potential for a stay pending Samsung’s appeal, but it’s been emphatically denied, presumably with a big swing of the gavel.

For now, US shelves will remain firmly Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 free. Not a huuuge deal, given the age of the tablet.

A more pressing concern will be the pre-trial injunction served against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which recently received a cheeky profile boost as the Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) flagship.

However, a Samsung spokesperson mourned: "Samsung is disappointed with the court's decision that denied our motion to stay. We believe today's ruling will ultimately reduce the availability of superior technological features to consumers in the United States.”

Meanwhile, Apple rattled off the same old speech. Yeah, you probably know it off by heart now. Say it with me: "This kind of blatant copying is wrong and, as we've said many times before, we need to protect Apple's intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.”

And the patent wars roll on…

So it's just the Tab 10.1 not the Tab 2 10.1 maybe Samsung have a plan by updating so often ;)

Nexus is kind of in same boat although apple've not paid the bond in that case yet so still available, have they already paid this one?

The real madness is that any action, punitive damages, etc required from any of these cases will be chicken feed to either Samsung/Apple and they only serve to grab the wrong sort of publicity and direct cash into lawyers pockets!
