Samsung-Apple hearing in Australia expedited, but the iPhone 4S ban attempt in Europe paused

In Europe the roles got reversed, though. The counter-lawsuits and preliminary injunction requests Samsung filed against the sales and marketing of the new Apple iPhone 4S in France and Italy on the basis of 3G standard patents were put on pause by the courts. Samsung will have until November 15 to file a new plea, while Apple will have until December 6 to respond. We can bet that Apple will file on the last day, and then December 16 is set for the hearing in Italy, by which time Apple will have sold many, many iPhone 4S handsets already. The same hearing was postponed in France also - for November 15.

Looking forward to Apple bringing these copycats to justice.

"To justice" So... when do we get to bring Apple to justice for notifications, OTA updates, phone technology, dual core processors, lock screen camera access, and the many other things that other phones had before the iPhone?

hey man chill out. . . if u have so much faith in Apple and think they are the greatest, then why bother to go to Phonearena everyday because people with iPhones live their lives knowing that Apple will prevail. And you should be one of those people to have a "life" outside of a virtual world but instead you choose to waste 10 hours a day on a website. What kind of example are you showing us about the "iPhone people". . . having no real life

amazing how apple's "bar napkin" lawsuits get expedited and have preliminary injunctions, while samsung's patent lawsuits that apple admits to breaking.. get paused.. me thinks someone is bribing lawyers.

Remixfa´s right. A lawsuit based on the patenting of rectangle devices with a screen gets a preliminary ban. A lawsuit based on an actual invention (3G) gets paused. Come on! I don´t like the lawsuits and all, but there is definitely something freaky going on here. Of course, since samsung actually produces a ton of the components of the iPhone, maybe samsung´s just trying to scare apple and not ban their products.
