Another blow for Apple, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban in Australia is no more

The Holiday season is treating Samsung good this year as they just scored a second major victory over Apple. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will go back on sale in Australia thanks to a decision by an Australian court lifting the 4 month ban.

Apple has accused Samsung of “slavishly” ripping off its designs, and the two giants have been involved in a bitter battle that has visited 10 countries.

Last week, Samsung had another major victory when a U.S. court denied Apple a preliminary injunction blocking the Tab 10.1 in the U.S. Even with this early success, Samsung still set aside $200 million for legal battles thanks to Apple. Of course, this will end up stifling innovation and cost the consumer.

Recently, Samsung has taken this battle outside the courtrooms with a marketing campaign mocking iPhone fanboys and fangirls.

The war is far from over, but it’s refreshing to see Samsung winning a few.
