SEOUL, South Korea—Samsung Electronics Co. is vowing to keep fighting Apple over intellectual property after receiving a boost from a German court ruling that favored the South Korean company.

Germany's Munich Regional Court on Wednesday reportedly rejected Apple's request to ban sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 N computer and the Galaxy Nexus smartphone in the country. Apple claims Samsung used its patented touchscreen technology.

Samsung welcomed the ruling Friday and said it will continue to defend itself against Apple's claims.

The ruling came after a separate German court earlier this week banned Samsung from selling its older tablet models in the country. The European Union has also announced it will investigate whether Samsung is breaching fair competition regulations.
