Several media outlets are reporting that Apple has won a preliminary injunction, granted by the German courts, forbidding Samsung from distributing its Galaxy tablet computer. The order means the Galaxy Tab 10.1 cannot be distributed anywhere in the European Union outside the Netherlands.

Apple is taking also legal action against Samsung in the United States. In a suit filed in U.S. Federal District Court Apple alleged that "Samsung has made its Galaxy phones and computer tablet work and look like Apple’s products through widespread patent and trade dress infringement. Samsung has even misappropriated Apple’s distinctive product packaging."
