The Federal Court of Australia will fast-track Samsung Electronics’ appeal against a ban on its Galaxy Tab 10.1 as Apple goes after online sellers who are still selling the tablet despite the injunction, reports the “Sydney Morning Herald” (http://macte.ch/2WLp5).
Apple won an injunction against Samsung earlier this month in Australia, temporarily preventing the sale of the Galaxy 10.1 tab. Apple accused Samsung of copying its iPad.
But while local retailers like Harvey Norman have been prevented from selling the device, several online sellers have been ignoring the injunction and offering the tablet to Australians, says the “Herald.” Apple is now going after them, threatening legal action. MobiCity.com.au and dMavo.com.au have both received threatening legal letters, the article adds.
