SYDNEY—Samsung Electronics Co. won a significant victory Wednesday in its global tablet war with Apple Inc., as a panel of judges lifted a temporary ban on sales of its devices in Australia.
Apple, which argues that Samsung copied the design from the iPad, had already succeeded in persuading a court in Germany to bar the sale of some of its tablets there. The U.S. company turned up the heat further this week by asking the same German court to ban sales of a modified Samsung device throughout the entire European Union.
But in Australia, the full bench of the Federal Court overturned last month’s court decision to ban sales there while awaiting a final hearing on Apple’s complaint. Because the commercial life of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 is about 12 months, the court declared, such a temporary ban would “have the practical effect of killing off” the device in Australia and “deliver Apple complete victory in respect of its claims.”
