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.

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."

Steve Jobs opened Samsung patent negotiations court told

Apple ex-CEO Steve Jobs personally contacted Samsung management in 2010, in an attempt to hash out the ongoing patent concerns and give the Korean company "a chance to do the right thing" it has been revealed. The exec outreach news was shared as part of Apple's legal presentation in Austalian courts yesterday, the WSJ reports, though Jobs' involvement was apparently limited to just the initial olive-branch.
