Good for Samsung.... I hope Apple just lose this case. Samsung tab don't look nothing like ipad imho.
There is not a lot you can do with tablet design it usually would be a flat screen with ether rounder or square edges with varying screen ratio.

A Dusseldorf, Germany regional court has partly lifted a preliminary injunction issued last week banning Samsung from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe, the day after Webwereld noticed inconsistencies in Apple's injunction filing. Now Europeans (save those living in Germany) won't need to trek to the Netherlands to get their Tab fix -- at least until a verdict is issued after Samsung's August 25th appeal hearing. Sales of the device were originally banned following an Apple lawsuit alleging patent infringement, but were permitted to resume after a realization that a German court may not have the authority to halt sales of a South Korean company's device outside of Germany. Since the judgement didn't affect devices that had already been distributed to retailers, it's unknown whether or not the week-long ban has had any effect on sales.

Is this really the reason why the Tab was banned in other countries? Why was Germany allowed to do this?

Yes, that was the reason for the Ban.... Not exactly sure why they let germany do this but my guess is it could be something to do with EU
