Apple faces counter allegations in Australia
The infringement claims levied on Apple by Samsung pertain to wireless communications. Samsung has stated that Apple has infringed on as many as 7 Australian patents. Also, last month the launch of Samsung’s coveted latest Galaxy tablet computer was delayed in Australia owing the same dispute with Apple, which has taken the form of a global patent dispute.
Among other claims, Samsung also added that all allegations thrown against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 by Apple were invalid, and that the court should revoke them. The Apple – Samsung lawsuit has been among the most high-profile ones in recent times. The technology heavyweights have been filing infringement claims against each other in different courts around the world.
