Samsung is now allowed to sell the tablet in the whole of the European Union except for Germany.

According to The Wall Street Journal, a court spokesperson said that it was unclear if it was even possible for the German court to stop Samsung from selling its tablet outside of Germany.

Despite the ruling, which allows Samsung Electronics to sell the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in most of Europe, Samsungs German arm still cannot sell the tablet in Germany or anywhere in the European Union.

Samsung is presumably still scheduled to appeal the ban on August 25th.

Apple also recently blocked Samsung from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia until a court there rules whether or not the tablet is infringing on 10 of Apples patents.

On Monday, reports surfaced suggesting that Apple has doctored its evidence in is patent case about Samsung, although the legitimacy of those claims remains unclear.
