Samsung countersues Apple for violations of wireless technology patents

Samsung has been getting hit pretty hard by Apple as of late; most recently through the delayed  launch of their Galaxy Tab 10.1 following an Apple Lawsuit. Samsung is keeping their head up though. Nearly a month later, Australian Federal Court Justice Annabelle Bennett declared, Unless Apple puts on evidence showing the impact in the U.S. or U.K., I can’t draw any positive assumptions. Quick on the heels of that remark, Samsung is now counter-suing Apple in Australia on grounds that the iPhone and iPad 2 violate Samsung patents. Samsung claims that both iPhone and iPad 2 “violate a number of wireless technology patents held by Samsung.” The suit is being filed ahead of the pending decision on whether or not to ban sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia. Samsung is also appealing the ruling in Germany.
