It’s getting more and more difficult to keep track of all the lawsuits, claims and accusations between these two. Legal battles are ongoing in several regions, from Japan to the U.K. and Australia has just been added to the list.
Samsung claims that Apple is infringing on seven of its patents with the iPhone and the iPad. If the court finds the claims real and rules in favor of the Korean company, Samsung could overturn a previous ruling banning its Galaxy Tab. Even more, in such a scenario, Apple’s patents could be invalidated (these refer to phones too) and Samsung would win back the Australian market (at least on the legal side).
