As we exclusively tipped last week Samsung Australia is taking the Australian Commissioner of Patents to court over patents held by Apple in Australia.
The move comes as Apple tries to block the new Samsung Galaxy S3 from going on sale in the USA.
According to documents filed with the Federal Court in Sydney, Samsung has asked the Court to invalidate four patents granted to Apple between 2009 and 2010. Samsung claims that the patents were granted outside the jurisdiction of the commissioner of patents.
In its application Samsung said it was “aggrieved by the patents”, because a case launched by Apple in 2011 against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was based on set patents that included those four.
