Australian Court Lifts Ban on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia!
A latest report from Sydney Morning Herald discloses that an Australian court has lifted the ban on the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia, removing the previous injunction won by Apple.
The full bench of the Federal Court – Justices John Dowsett, Lindsay Foster and David Yates – today unanimously reversed a Federal Court judge’s ruling last month that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 be banned from sale in Australia.
Apple, however, has decided to go for an appeal to the High Court to continue ban on the sale of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia.
For the newbie, Apple and Samsung have been involved in legal and patent lawsuits against each other for several months. The war got fire when Apple filed a number of law suits against Samsung to ban Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1 in various markets worldwide; as Apple claims that Samsung’s Galaxy products line is the perfect copy of its iPhone and iPad tablet.
Apple, Google, Samsung
In the present case, Apple had previously won an injunction against Samsung that prevented the company to sale their Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia.
