Samsung will add cross-suits in Oz

Court stalls fondleslab release again

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

In yesterday’s directions hearing in the Federal Court in Sydney, the only new detail to emerge in the Apple-versus-Samsung international lawyers’ progressive dinner is that Samsung will follow its international fightback strategy and file counter-suits against Apple.

Apple has refrained from adding anything to its few public statements about the court case, but apparently remains outraged that Samsung’s plastic rectangular touch-screen computer looks like Apple’s ditto.

The next hearings will take place late in September, reports The Australian. In the meantime, Samsung’s Galaxy 10.1 remains off-limits for Australian customers. Agreeing to the delay (did they have a choice?), Samsung has also said it will give Apple 48 hours’ notice if it decides to schedule a launch date.

Apple is to nominate the Australian patents it accuses Samsung of breaching by Friday, with more details to be filed next Monday.

Samsung said in a statement that it will challenge the validity of unspecified Apple patents – the 2001: A Space Odyssey defense – and will accuse Apple of infringing Samsung patents. ®
