Apple Wins Injunction: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Faces Ban in Australia!
Apple and Samsung are still engaged in a great patent war of tech history on the designs of their smartphones and tablets as Apple claims that both Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy S II are the perfect copies of its iPad and iPhone . The latest news in this concern reveals that Apple won an injunction through the Australian court which results in blocking the sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia.
Notably, Apple filed an injunction against Samsung in Australia back in August, claiming that Galaxy Tab 10.1 violates 10 of its patents related to its iPad design and features and requested the court to impose ban on the sales of Samsung galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia.
Samsung made its best to assure the court that the Australian version of Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be quite different from the U.S. one, but the court didn’t convinced and the judge once again sided with Apple. Now, this patent lawsuit filed by Apple against Samsung will go under a long trial.
It seems that Samsung is not the looser at any cost and still there is a chance to win the case, but for now Australian smartphone users will not able to buy (legally) the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in their country.
Samsung commented on the court’s ruling in the following words;
“Samsung will continue its legal proceeding against Apple’s claim in order to ensure our innovative products remain available to consumers,”
As we have earlier described that Apple and Samsung has been involved in this biggest patent war in the U.S. history for many months which now has spread worldwide. Apple and Samsung have been litigating against each other including Europe, U.S. and South Korea, and so far Apple has succeeded to ban Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II in many countries.
Samsung has also counter-sued Apple in several countries, including South Korea, France and Italy, especially targeting Apple new iPhone but it didn’t succeeded to even delay the sale of Apple iPhone or iPad tablet.Apple, Google, iPad App, iPhone, Samsung
