Apple is unlikely to win a ban on sale of Samsung's Galaxy 10.1N tablet, a German court said.

The court that originally banned the sales of the Galaxy 10.1 back in September is unlikely to grant Apple an injunction against the Galaxy 10.1N. According to the Judge, Samsung has changed the device's design sufficiently to distance it from the iPad.

"Consumers are well aware that there is an original and that competitors try to use similar designs, so buyers are vigilant when looking at products," Jude Brueckner-Hofmann said. "We don't think that someone buys a Samsung to make his table neighbor at the coffee house believe he owns an iPad."

Since Apple's initial legal success back in September, the company has faced many setbacks trying to fight off Samsung. They recently failed to convince an Australian court to reinstate a ban in that country. Apple claims Samsung is exploiting the reputation of the iPad.

Samsung on the other hand, believes Apple is trying to monopolize the tablet market.
