Apple says Samsung’s Galaxy tablet cases and cases for the company’s phones infringe the Cupertino company’s patents. 

According to “Bloomberg” (, Apple issued the notice of infringement to Samsung in Australia over the cases, and will file a statement of claim. Samsung’s lawyer Katrina Howard said at the same hearing the company was served with the notice that the cases infringe at least 10 patents.

This is another round in the global, ongoing brouhaha between Apple and Samsung involving patent disputes. The two companies have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents.
