Samsung Wins Australia Round of Apple Fight Over Tablet Sales

Samsung Electronics Co., the world’s biggest smartphone maker, won a battle in its global patent war with Apple Inc. as an Australian appeals court overturned a ban on the sale of its tablet rivaling the iPad.

Samsung can begin sales of its Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the country starting Dec. 2, a federal appeals judge ruled today. A three-member appeal panel unanimously said that a lower-court judge earlier made a mistake in granting Cupertino, California-based Apple’s request for a ban.
