In the great battle of Apple v. Samsung, Apple has now lost the battle in Australia. The High Court of Australia has ruled that Apples case lacks merit, meaning Samsung is now in the clear to sell the tablet as it sees fit. Samsung has confirmed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will go on sale in time for the holidays in Australia now that things have been straightened out legally.
Apple did fight the ruling, stating the Federal Court of Australia failed to adequately take into account the scope of the previous judgement but despite that disagreement, the High Court justices ruled that the application for special leave be denied and that Apple pay Samsung's legal costs. Again, not the last we'll hear of things but no matter -- Samsung is going ahead.
