Apple is desperate to not let Samsung devices reach consumer's hands. How far do you think Apple will go to 'enforce' a court order? Sky is the limit. Apple started sending out legal warning to retailers across the US to stop selling Samsung Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Nexus phones. Apple did this even when the same court issued a temporary suspension of the ban.
Samsung called the wordings of Apple's letters 'menacing'. Here are some excerpts from the letter which The Verge has obtained and published on Scribed:
As the italicized language provides, the order applies not only to the named Samsung entities, but also to anyone "acting in concert" with them. Apple thus believes that the order extends to you because you may be selling, offering to sell, or importing the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer.
Please comply with the order by ceasing immediately to engage in any of the specified acts (e.g., importing, offering to sell, or selling within the United States) in connection with the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer and any product that is no more than colorably different from it and embodies the '889 patent's design. At a minimum, Apple believes compliance with the Court's order requires immediately removing for sale the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from all physical and online venues under your direction or control.
The same court lifted the ban temporarily and US stores can continue to sell Galaxy Nexus. It is not clear if Apple informed the retailers to whom it sent the 'menacing' letter that they can now start selling the phone because the ban has been lifted temporarily?
One can only hope that Apple won't be sending cops to break the doors and seize the Galaxy Nexus from those customers who bought it during the narrow window while the ban was in effect.
