Samsung strikes back at Apple, to stop their sales in Japan and Australia
Remember that few months back Apple blocked the display and sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab in Germany? Well now it was Samsung’s turn to strike back as they have filed preliminary injunction in the Japan and Australia to stop the sales of Apple’s iPhone 4S. They also seek an judicial order to immediately stop the sales of iPhone 4 and iPad 2. These injunctions are based on Apple’s unlawful use of Samsung’s patented technologies in these countries.
In Japan Samsung has HSPA standard related patent and 3 user interface patents that Apple is infringing. In Australia the infringements are related to wireless telecommunications standards such as WCDMA and HSPA. Samsung hopes to give Apple a tough time just like they did over their flag ship Galaxy Tab 10.1 and keep their sales in control while Galaxy brand continues to dominate sale figures in absence of Apple’s products.
