More news from the patent war front. It seems that
Samsung has lost against Apple in
Australia as selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 has now been officially
In more detail, the Federal Court of Australia has issued an
injunction, in accordance to which Samsung cannot trade the
aforementioned tablet model, which Apple described as the
"slavishly" copied version of the iPad.
However, this is solely Australia that the talk is about, lest
we forget that the legal fight is still on all around
Europe, Asia and the
Sydney Morning Herald reported Justice Annabelle
Bennett as saying:
"From 15 April when proceedings commenced in the US, Samsung
proceeded with its eyes wide open.
"The balance of convenience was almost even ... there were
several factors that favoured Apple."
Despite this, Samsung reported that it still was keeping its
head high when it responded to the news:
"Samsung will continue its legal proceeding against Apple's
claim in order to ensure our innovative products remain available
"This is a part of our ongoing legal proceeding against
Apple's claim. Samsung is also confident it can prove Apple's
violation of Samsung's wireless technology patents."
It is probably worth mentioning that in recent news Samsung has
shifted its approach and began to attack rather than defend as it
has done until recently.
Apple is yet to comment.
