Apple wins in Australia: Judge bans sale of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 7:31PM EST

Apple won a patent infringement lawsuit it brought against Samsung in Australia, The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Thursday. The ruling prevents Samsung’s Australia-based businesses from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 locally. Samsung had originally agreed not to sell or advertise its tablet in Australia until the court issued its ruling on the matter. In late September, the South Korea-based phone maker proposed a secret deal with Apple, in which it would tweak the parts of the tablet in order to avoid infringing on the iPhone maker’s patents, but Apple subsequently shot down the deal. Similar lawsuits are ongoing around the globe, including in Japan, France, the Netherlands and the United States.
