Apple wins Australian Galaxy Tab sales ban extension

An Australian court earlier today extended a ban on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the country by at least a week, according to a Reuters report. Earlier this week, Samsung won an appeal in its case versus Apple, which would have seen the sales ban lifted today. Apple will now have a week to make its appeal to the High Court, which will decide whether Samsung will be allowed to resume sales ahead of a final hearing expected to take place next year, by which time the current Tab 10.1 model may be obsolete.

This is all rather silly and a waste of both companies’ resources. Samsung is doing reasonably well with their Galaxy line, which is the only reason Apple is ****blocking their sales wherever the courts are sufficiently bought off to Apple’s “arguments”. Meanwhile, Samsung has already re-designed the “offending” products and, as pointed out, by the time these court cases are won/lost/dropped/thrown out of court, will have likely replaced the challenged products with something that will avoid whatever spurious claims Apple made, leaving Apple to start the whole silly cycle all over again with some other list of idiotic claims until the courts get tired of Apple’s antics.
