A federal court in Sydney ruled in favor of Apple in its ongoing patent war with Samsung, prohibiting the advertisement and sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia until the dispute is resolved or permission is given from the court. Previously scheduled for an "imminent" release, Samsung's latest tablet must now be given to Apple at least seven days prior to its Australian release for inspection. The court ruling has no impact on distribution in other countries, however it does represent the first of many international injunctions that Apple has filed against Samsung based on the alleged patent infringements of Galaxy devices on the iPhone and iPad. A court will further review the case on August 29 in Sydney and schedule a trial date if necessary.
