The battle between Apple and Samsung still rages and this time Samsung are trying to halt sales of the iPhone 4s in Australia and Japan. Samsung are claiming infringements in user interface and technology patents in Japan and wireless communications standards in Australia.
To make matters worse, Samsung are also filing in the Japanese courts to stop the sale of Apple’s iPhone 4 and iPad 2 products. James Chung, a spokesman at Samsung told the Wall Street Journal “We are now counterattacking Apple again.”
Samsung are fighting back after Apple won a temporary injunction against the Galaxy 10.1 Tablet in Australia – blocking sales of the unit. Samsung also failed to persuade the Dutch court to block sales of Apple products in the Netherlands, claiming an infringement of mobile network technology patents.
Samsung are also attempting to block sales of the iPhone 4S in France and Italy after sales started last week.
Kitguru says: We don’t know how this is going to end up, but so far Samsung aren’t having much luck.
