Samsung, Apple hearing set for Aug 25
Frankfurt: Korean company Samsung Electronics will go to a German court on August 25 to try to overturn a ban on it selling flagship Galaxy tablets in most of the European Union.
Earlier this week, a Duesseldorf court temporarily barred Samsung from selling its tablets, following an injunction filed by Apple which had said the Galaxy line of mobile phones and tablets "slavishly" copied its iPad and iPhone.
In a global intellectual property battle, Apple has also sued Samsung in the United States, Australia and elsewhere.
The August 25 hearing will be followed by a decision, likely within a few weeks.
Samsung, whose tablets are based on Google`s Android software, has countersued Apple.
Apple has also filed an injunction at a court in The Hague on three patent, copyright and design infringements, to stop the sale of some Samsung products in the Netherlands and block their distribution in the EU via the Netherlands.
Dutch judge Edger Brinkman told the court on Thursday he would decide on the case by September 15, adding that if he ruled in Apple`s favor, the injunction would come into effect four weeks later, on October 13.
