Samsung seeks iPhone 4S sales ban

Samsung have ramped up the pressure on Apple this morning by seeking a complete ban of iPhone 4S sales in Japan and Australia. The decision comes after Samsung filed an injunction attempt against the 4S in France and Italy just after the launch, and just days after an Australian court banned the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Samsung have appealed the ruling.

The Samsung and Apple disputes have grown recently, although Apple appear to be winning the legal battle so far. However, Samsung continue to supply chips to Apple – their biggest customer.

A Samsung statement read..

Apple has continued to violate our patent rights and free ride on our technology. We will no longer stand idly by and will steadfastly protect our intellectual property.
