Australian Court Lifts Ban on the Sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Tablet

December 9, 2011 -

Samsung should be happy today as Australia’s High Court removes the country-wide ban that was put on its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet - the result of an injunction in its continuing trademark disputes with Apple. The tablet had been under an injunction since July of this year.

Australia’s court froze sales of the device earlier this year after Apple filed an infringement suit against the Galaxy Tab. At the time Samsung called the court's ruling "grossly unjust." The thrust of Apple's lawsuits is that the Galaxy tab shares many similarities with the iPad.

Australian courts will take up the case again in March 2012. Samsung has filed a similar lawsuit in the country seeking to have sales of the iPad halted in the region, but the chances of that happening are unlikely. U.S. courts recently denied Apple's request to halt sales of the tablet in the U.S.

I hope Apple has to pay damages to Samsung for this.

Andrew EisenYes, hence my subsequent shout.04/20/2015 - 3:15pm
Matthew Wilsonwhile the article itself isnt that great, but the point is still valid.04/20/2015 - 3:14pm
Andrew EisenProfessionals do need to be mindful of what they say on social media though. That's true.04/20/2015 - 3:11pm
Andrew EisenWell, it was almost a decent article from Techraptor. Some day. Some day...04/20/2015 - 3:09pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://techraptor.net/content/gamings-pr-problem both game devs and pr people alike need to to keep in mind, when your on twiter you are also representing the company you work for.04/20/2015 - 2:39pm
E. Zachary KnightI don't really care either way, but that was just my understanding based on previous reads.04/20/2015 - 2:13pm
E. Zachary KnightBut now I am confused. I thought Johnny Storm was the adopted one, but the dad is black. Does that mean that Sue is adopted or is it just an interracial marriage with existing children?04/20/2015 - 2:12pm
E. Zachary KnightNew Fantastic 4 trailer finally shows powers and just a wee bit of whimsy. Not too much mind you. No need to dilute the dark and brooding. http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/trailers/431505-the-new-trailer-for-fantastic-four-is-here04/20/2015 - 2:11pm
E. Zachary KnightOk. Just checked another of my Twitter accounts and there is a setting, opt-in. So it looks like a slow roll out.04/20/2015 - 1:17pm
E. Zachary KnightI agree. I looked but could not find any settings for DMs. So either there is no opt-out or they are slowly rolling it out one block of users at a time.04/20/2015 - 1:11pm
Andrew EisenI can't find the setting for direct messaging but I agree, it should absolutely default to off.04/20/2015 - 12:54pm
Matthew Wilson@james the issue is that it is way to easy to make a troll twiter acount. if I had it my way I would set it so you can fallow anyone, but if you want to send tweeta, you have to pay a one time 5$ fee.04/20/2015 - 12:38pm
james_fudgeIt shows how Twitter management thinks: instead of fixing harassment let's offer another avenue for it… DUMB.04/20/2015 - 12:35pm
james_fudgeIt depends on what the default setting is, Andrew04/20/2015 - 12:34pm
