Australia court to hear Samsung-Apple iPhone 4S patent case in March

“An Australian court has agreed to hear in March a case brought by Samsung Electronics to ban sales of Apple Inc’s latest iPhone, with sales allowed to continue as normal ahead of the full hearing on alleged patent infringements,” Reuters reports.

“Samsung has sought to block sales of Apple’s latest iPhone 4S, which went on sale in early October, by filing preliminary sales injunction requests in four countries including Australia,” Reuters reports. “The decision by the court to hold a full hearing in March gives Apple at least four months to sell the new iPhone in Australia.”

Reuters reports, “Apple has scored preliminary injunctions against some Samsung products in Australia, Germany and the Netherlands, and further seeks to block sales of Samsung models in the United States, the key smartphone battleground. In Australia, Samsung has appealed against an Australian court’s decision to grant a preliminary injunction blocking the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, with a full court hearing scheduled for Nov. 25.”
