Samsung’s court bid to ban iPhone 4S in Australia
Samsung issued a statement outlining three patent infringements related to wireless telecommunications standards including WCDMA (wideband code division multiple access) and HSPA (high speed packet access).
“In light of these violations Samsung believes the sale of such Apple devices should be injuncted. Apple has continued to violate our patent rights, which seriously violate Samsung’s intellectual property,” the statement read.
Samsung alleges the recently released iPhone 4S contains these disputed wireless standards.
Apple launched the iPhone 4S in Australia, US, UK, Canada, Germany, Japan and France in a record-breaking opening weekend.
Samsung is also attempting to block the sale of the iPad 2 in Japan as well as the iPhone 4S.
The company is also launching similar action to ban the iPhone 4S in Italy and France.
Apple has made no comment on the matter.
