As noted at Australian news sites on Thursday, October 13, 2011, a Federal Court judge decided to grant the request of Apple to ban the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the country.

According to reports, Justice Annabelle Bennett handed down her ruling that day and granting a temporary injunction in favor of Apple, banning the sale of the latest Samsung tablet.

Apparently, Justice Bennett noted that Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 should not be sold in Australia since it uses features such as touch-screen technology, among others, being used in Apple iPad.

“We are disappointed with this ruling and Samsung will be seeking legal advice on its options,” Samsung was quoted in a statement.

“We will continue to legally assert our intellectual property rights against those who violate Samsung‘s patents and free ride on our technology.” Samsung added.

Incidentally, this is only one of the global Samsung-Apple patent war cases particularly in the US, Europe, South Korea and Japan, where these two giant companies are suing each other.

Last week, Samsung announced that it will try to stop the sale of iPhone 4S in France and Italy, claiming patent infringement against Apple, which being used in third-generation transmission technology.
