Ban on Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 reversed by Australian Court, Apple to appeal
posted by Alan F. / Nov 29, 2011, 11:01 PM
Apple and Samsung are involved in a number of legal battles. The Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 is permanently banned in Germany following a patent infringement case in that country and back in Australia, a full hearing is scheduled for March 2012 on Samsung's claim that the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad infringe on patents owned by Samsung.

Apple's so pathetic... they're like desperate little mice when the court overturned the injunction.

Apple has to file a response that shows why the initial sales ban should be upheld during the appeal process by this Friday. If the High Court doesn't buy the Apple arguments, the ban is released. Stay tuned. Cook up some more popcorn.

Too bad Samsung didn't have one of those deals setup that if Apple lost it's case Apple would have to pay Samsung the damages from bringing a frivolous suit. Apple keeps trying to beat it's competition by suing them and delaying their products to the point they can not compete fairly with them. It appears to be working too. Steve taught them well....

Okay. First off, the only reason I got the Thunderbolt was to give myself the best shot at being locked into unlimited data with LTE. I didn\'t know they would allow anyone with an unlimited 3G plan to keep that, so I upgraded to the TB ASAP. Secondly... i\'ve had the phone since it\'s release and have never had major problems. In fact, it\'s the first Android phone I haven\'t rooted because I have had no need to. Yes, the battery life was less than perfect when I first got the phone (usually 8-10 hours) and I bought a second battery. As of now, the phone easily lasts 12-15 hours a day and I haven\'t used my second battery in months. Just because I have a Thunderbolt doesn\'t discredit my opinion regarding anything else. I have no problem with whatever device makes you happy, and the fact that all you can ever do to discredit my posts is mention that I have a Thunderbolt shows how little you actually have to say. Anyways, carry on.

I'm surprised that this took so long to get it overturned. I'm not sure how the system works in Australia but when a presiding judge is married to a senior member of the law firm representing apple and the judge herself is a former member of the same law firm, most would consider this a conflict of interest by a mile.

Apple really opened a can of worms with all the patent bullsh*t. Companies were all working nicely, making forward-thinking products, slightly borrowing ideas from other companies to further the industry as a whole. Then along comes Apple... who sues any/every company that even slightly resembles a product or feature of theirs. Now all these companies aren't innovating nearly as much and they have lawyers on tap constantly going over other products to make sure someone else didn't use the same piece of plastic in the same location as theirs. Apple basicly brought this whole industry to a grinding halt as far as innovation goes. I'm not saying they didn't have the right to do what they did, but they should've looked at the big picture, the industry as a whole, and realize the repercussions of their actions.
