Apple extends legal action against Samsung and HTC

Apple filed a complaint against HTC in the High Court last week. Details of the lawsuit have not been revealed but it comes two weeks after the US International Trade Commission ruled that HTC had violated two of Apple’s patents.
Meanwhile, in Australia, Apple sought to prevent Samsung from releasing its Galaxy Tab 10.1. The new version of Samsung’s tablet computer has a 10” screen and runs Google’s Android operating system. Apple claims that it is a “blatant copy” of the iPad.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Samsung had agreed to halt sales and advertising for the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is scheduled to launch in Australia next week.

In a statement, Samsung said: “Apple Inc. filed a complaint with the Federal Court of Australia involving a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 variant that Samsung Electronics had no plans of selling in Australia. No injunction was issued by the court and the parties in the case reached a mutual agreement which stipulates that the variant in question will not be sold in Australia.”

Samsung said the Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be released in Australia “in the new future” but did not give a date.

Apple was not available for comment at the time of writing.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is due for release in Britain on Thursday.

The actions against Samsung and HTC follow a complaint by Apple against Amazon in Germany that forced the Amazon Appstore to suspend new app submissions until the resolution of a dispute with Apple over who owns the name ‘App Store’.
