Samsung has backtracked on an earlier statement that it was caught out by the recent ruling over its Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1in, and is now moving to distance itself from those comments.
Late on Tuesday, a German court issued a preliminary injunction preventing Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1in tablet across the European Union.
Apple had issued a complaint that Samsung was infringing on several of its patents and copying the design of its successful iPad tablet with the Tab.
In response to the ruling, Reuters quoted a statement from Samsung, in which the hardware firm berated the court for taking the decision without any notice or opportunity for Samsung to present its case.
"The request for injunction was filed with no notice to Samsung, and the order was issued without any hearing or presentation of evidence from Samsung," the statement noted.
"We will take all necessary measures to ensure Samsung's innovative mobile communications devices are available to customers in Europe and around the world."
However, Samsung has since told V3 that it cannot verify the statement as official, and instead has issued a watered-down version.
"Samsung is disappointed with the court's decision and we intend to act immediately to defend our intellectual property rights through the ongoing legal proceedings in Germany and will continue to actively defend these rights throughout the world," the firm said in a statement sent to V3.
