An Australian court has temporarily banned the company from selling its new Galaxy tablet in the country. This appeared to be one more setback for the South Korean electronics giant in a worldwide patent battle with Apple Inc., accusing it of copying the electronic devices.
Last week Federal Court Justice granted a temporary injunction against the sales of the company’s Galaxy Tab in Australia. The ruling will prevent the company from selling the tablet in the country in its current form unless the court issues a further order, or until resolving an issue over a patent. This appeared to be a blow for Samsung, which really hoped to launch its new device just before Christmas sales. The court decision of the Australian court came after courts in other countries, such as Germany and the Netherlands, that also made judgements upholding Apple’s claims of its IP being appropriated by Samsung.
The battle included ten countries and it has underlined the perception of Samsung as a very good imitator rather than a pace setter. Within the last years, Samsung has become #1 worldwide in TVs and #2 in smartphones in sales. However, in contrast to Apple, this company hasn’t mesmerized the users with its originality and innovation.
This past April, Apple launched a lawsuit against Samsung in the US, accusing it of copying the product design, as well as user interface and packaging. South Korean company fought back, filing lawsuits in respond to accuse Apple of patent violation of its wireless telecommunications technology. Apple filed the Australian lawsuit this summer, where it also accused the company of stealing its touch screen technology. The country’s judge explained that she had been granting the temporary injunction in part since she felt Apple had a likelihood of winning the case against Samsung.
Thus far, the judge’s full orders weren’t published and it wasn’t immediately clear if Samsung could try to sell an edition of the electronic device that removed the features Apple listed in the lawsuit. Of course, Samsung was disappointed with the court decision and promised to seek legal advice. They also promised to go on with their legal proceeding against Apple’s claim to make sure their innovative devices remain available to users.

|Bloody hilarious... they should all blaze up now.. Boom Shankar people|
|why do the courts have rights to do this anyways over "Patents". What is Apple claiming that "Samsung" is infringing on there touch screen technology now? Apple really needs to get with the program. its a free market, you compete with features. Dont force company's out of the market with "patent" claims to compete. Just proves youre trying to be a Monopoly.|
|kingtiger is right|
Apple is a greedy bastard. If their claim is OF LEGAL value why did they not also go after other cell phone makers as well?
droid x as an example made by Motorola very very popular and my opinion kicks the moronic iPhone in the butt.
The country’s judge explained that she had been granting the temporary injunction in part since she felt Apple had a likelihood of winning the case against Samsung.
The stupid judge is no better making a comment like that.. What she going to be sitting as judge on to up coming trial? If so clear case of conflict.
What Apple claims is a patent of multi touch technology- meaning touching the screen in more than one place at the same time.
I guess Apple will be suing everybody including HP for my touch screen computer where I can use more than one finger and I again guess apple is going to sue microcrap for including multi touch in the OS they sell?

|The real problem is that Apple have spent so much money coming up with these ideas for their product only to find that the end result isn't half as good as the others that emulate them. So in order to sell more of their inferior product they need to remove the competition.|
|Apple just flat sucks!! Gotta sue everybody cuz they cant keep up with the competition?! What a joke, didnt they make enough money?! Personally, I own a galaxy S 4g, best phone I ever owned, PERIOD. And as far as the patent for touchscreen, if I remember correctly, wasnt that technology out way before he iPhone?? I think the HP tablet pc was out before the iPhone, correct me if I'm wrong please. And with the release of the new iOS 5, all they did is add technology n software that Android already incorporates in their phones, the notification bar, the multi-tasking, 3rd party apps(w/o jailbreaking)...I mean come on Apple, that shit's been out for at least 4 years now!! Android flat out kicks iOS's ass completely, made for developers is the way it should be to begin with right?! Apple's pissyness started when they lost the law suit for jailbreaking, they should've learned then...n honestly the only thing that makes the Galaxy anything like the iPhone is if you use a launcher to mimic the iPhone...anyways, I said my peace!! ET KICKS ASS!!|

|@infomaster... yeah everything causes cancer, or at least bad for health. even sitting in front of the pc for long periods does that too lol|
|@bigcow2k You r Right EVERYTHING causes cancer lol|
|i would rather have a samsung anything than anything from apple.|
i already have samsung tv, washing machine, refrigerator, etc. and they are great, and the flat screen tv is the best and has the best and most logical remote.
after all, samsung and lg make over 90 percent of all flat panels and are used even in metz tv's. (metz doesn't manufacture the components used in their tv)

|Samsung, in my opinion is the one of the best phone/electronic manufacturers out there. Apple is just mad that android is taking over, and their piece of crap iphone can't keep up with the demand of the customer. Good riddance Apple.|
|All I can say is: @%$# Apple!! It just goes to show how [email protected] GREEDY mankind is becomming!||
