Apple To Australian Retailer: No Galaxy Tab For You!

Apple seems to be getting a little cocky after managing to win a couple of its flood of lawsuits around the world that seek to prevent tablets other than the iPad from being sold.

Specifically, Apple has threatened to file a lawsuit against Australian retailer Kogan because it is willing to sell the Galaxy Tab to consumers.

The iPad maker was successful in effectively blocking Samsung from officially launching its tablet in the country, claiming the Galaxy Tab was a blatant rip-off of the iPad and could lead to consumer confusion.

Apple has filed similar suits all around the world but has only had limited success. Australia was one such success. Germany was another.

That's not enough for Apple, though. It simply does not want anyone to have access to a Galaxy Tab. So Kogan complied and has stopped selling the Samsung device. But the retailer is not happy about it.

"There is a fine line between legitimately enforcing your intellectual property on the one hand, and just trying to stifle competition on the other - in our view Apple is very precariously walking that line," said Kogan executive director David Shafer, as quoted by the Sydney Morning Herald.

Company CEO Ruslan Kogan realized how difficult it would be to go up against a company like Apple. "Pointless litigation is not our specialty," he said.

This is only part of what has become a humongous legal war between Samsung and Apple. Not willing to sit idly by, Samsung is also taking patent infringement action against Apple for several of its mobile technologies.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
