Preliminary Injunction Stops U.S. Sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Apple’s request for a preliminary injunction stopping U.S. sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 was granted this week by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh.  Apple asserts that this Samsung product infringes on Apple patents ( a claim Apple has similarly made regarding other Samsung products).

In order to effectuate the injunction, Apple will have to post a $2.6 million bond.  If the injunction is later overturned, Samsung can request damages for its lost profits resulting from the injunction, which would be recoverable against this bond if awarded.
