Apple, Samsung Patent Fight still continues
TNI Bureau: Legal fight between Samsung, the World’s biggest maker of Smartphones and Apple, the global leader in selling tablet computers, is still continuing. The latest episode in this connection was that – an Australian Court has begun hearing of the case from 23 July 2012 which is expected to run for at least three months.
This present proceeding is quiet important since the decision of this Court will affect the verdict of the other Courts in other countries which are trying the same case lodged by the two techno giants. Apple and Samsung are fighting over Smartphone and tablet patents across 10 different countries.
The Australian dispute is centered on touch-screen technology used in Samsung’s new Galaxy 10.1 tablet. The case is expected to continue till 2014 unless the two companies come to a global settlement.
Earlier on last 10 July, Samsung had won another patent case in this connection against Apple in U.K. as the Court there held that the Galaxy tablet by Samsung has not the same characteristics hence it does not infringes any patent right of Apple.
