Apple Strikes Again In The War Against Samsung And Ban Sales Of Galaxy Tab In Australia


It seems that Samsung has to wait long time to begin sales of its Galaxy Tab in Australia. A Federal Court judge said she may okay a “brief” injunction while studding Apple’s patent-infringement claims. This temporarily decision came during the start of a two-day court hearing on whether sales by the Korean tablet manufacturer should be halted in Australia.

This battle between two huge companies seems to take a long time and I don’t think it will come to an end with an absolute winner but coming .
In a report by cultofmac :
Justice Annabelle Bennett told both parties it would be best if the issues was resolved quickly. “Technology moves very quickly,” she noted, according to Bloomberg. Apple’s lawyer, Steven Burley, told the judge Monday that the tech giant would be ready to go to trial next week.
Samsung, which last week announced it would more aggressively contest Apple’s claims, said “This is where we draw the line.” The South Korean firm’s lawyer, David Catterns, told Bennett the court case is a “high-stakes fight” yet felt any resolution of the matter could take “well into next year.” Earlier this month, Samsung countersued Apple, claiming the iPad infringes seven patents.
Always we ask a question who we will win this war , but I think the question now will Samsung be able to survive in this war  and or afford it

  2. I don't know. Engaging with Apple in a court war takes big balls and a lot of money. Apple can sure withstand agains anyone. Samsung probably will get pretty hurt.

  3. Looks like more is coming up, really, as Hasidic basically said Apple has a lot of cash, meaning better lawyers. I'm not sure if you can work something significant out, well, unless you have some crazy evidence.

  8. I really don't like apple. I was okay with the overpriced, overrated products, I was okay (not really) with the restrictions, I was okay (this is really a stretch) with the sneering elitists who make up too much of their consumer base, but now they're just devolving into patent trolls.

  10. I cant wait till Ipad3 comes out so i can have a bomb ass tablet. Apple will always exist because they protect what is theirs and you pay for it if you want a piece. Now thats a quality adaptable business plan right there my friends.
