Apple squeezes out longer Samsung tablet ban in Oz

Apple has managed to extend the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban in Australia for a further week, despite an appeals court describing the block as "clearly wrong", after an appeal of its own to the high court. Samsung had been given permission to put the 10-inch Android tablet on sale in the country from today, but Apple squeezed in a quick appeal request which forced an extension to the injunction until December 9, ABC reports.

Apple’s “clearly wrong” Aussie Samsung tablet ban overturned

Apple’s “clearly wrong” Aussie Samsung tablet ban overturned

Apple's sales injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia has been overthrown, with an appeals court dismissing the original block as "clearly wrong" and allowing the Android slate to go on sale this Friday. The Cupertino company secured a short stay until the end of the week so that it could ready an appeal of its own, but was told by the Sydney court that if it wanted to extend the tablet ban - handed down in October when Apple convinced a judge that Samsung had "slavishly copied" its iPad design - it would need to convince the High Court.

Apple has tablet “monopoly” says judge as Samsung appeals ban

Samsung has accused an Australian judge of "fundamental errors" and of misunderstanding the law, as the company protests its recent legal failures against Apple. Challenging the Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban awarded last month in the appeals court this week, Samsung described the original ruling as being "grossly unjust" SMH reports, and arguing that Justice Bennett "misunderstood and misapplied the basic requirements" around deciding whether Apple's patents were in fact valid.

Samsung admits “informal policy of not suing Apple”

Samsung admits “informal policy of not suing Apple”

Samsung has admitted it had an "informal policy of not suing Apple for patent infringement" so as to protect its supplier role for iPhone and iPad components, alleging that it overlooked Apple knowingly using 3G telecoms tech without first licensing it until the point that the Cupertino company fired off a lawsuit of its own. The Korean company's legal team claims patent licensing negotiations were underway up until April this year, SMH reports, and that Apple knowingly went ahead and infringed when talks floundered. The Australian court presiding over the 3G patent case has scheduled a full hearing for March 2012, despite Apple's demands for a later date.

Samsung demands iPhone 4S source code and subsidy secrets

Samsung has demanded the iPhone 4S source code so that it can hunt for potential Apple patent infringement, in the latest escalation of the legal battle between the two companies. Just weeks after Apple secured a sales ban against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia, Samsung's lawyers asked courts in the country to order Apple to hand over the iPhone 4S code, Smart Office reports, in addition to details on subsidies agreed with Australian carriers. "If subsidies are given for the iPhone 4S," Samsung counsel Cynthia Cochrane told the judge, "there are less to go around for my client's products."

Apple Aussie win could mean death to all Android slates warns expert

Apple Aussie win could mean death to all Android slates warns expert

Apple's sales injunction success over the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia earlier today could have wide-reaching impact on other Android tablets in the country, it's been suggested, with one of Steve Jobs' own patents helping strike the killing blow. The IP in question is particularly broad, FOSS Patents points out, and potentially "broad enough in scope that Google and its OEM partners can't work around them without rendering their products less appealing, or even entirely unappealing, to consumers."

Apple has won a preliminary sales injunction against Samsung in Australia, blocking the Galaxy Tab 10.1 from hitting store shelves and leaving the Korean company to face either a 2012 trial or scrapping the slate altogether.
