Samsung Petition Seeks iPhone 4S Sales Ban in Japan and Australia

October 17, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Apple – Samsung duel is raging as ever. After having suffered many a blow from Apple, it is now the turn of the Korean company to attack Apple. Samsung has now decided to have sweet revenge on the iPhone 4S.

Latest reports say Samsung is seeking a ban on Apple’s iPhone sales in Japan and Australia. To that effect, they have filed infringement cases against the iPhone 4S in the courts of Tokyo and the state of New South Wales.

They have made it clear that they are looking forward for the injunction orders in both the countries against the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 in Japan.

Samsung had stated that they cannot wait further to respond against Apple’s violation of technology patents and will protect their intellectual property. They believe that the Cupertino-based company has violated three of their wireless technology patents required for operating the mobile phones in Australia.

The Korean firm had also filled an appeal against the ban on Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the Australian court. The continuous battle between the Apple and Samsung had begun in April on the issue of iPhone and iPad patents allegedly copied by the Korean company.

With the battle on, Apple had more success than Samsung by banning their products like Galaxy S smartphones and Galaxy Tab in Germany, Australia and other countries.

Meanwhile, Samsung‘s request to ban the sales of Apple’s 3G phones and tablet devices in Netherlands was rejected by the Dutch court. To strengthen their action against Apple, the Korean company is also looking to block the iPhone 4S sales in Italy and France too. Where do you think the duel is heading for?
