Apple has expanded its patent battle with Samsung to Australia, where it sought and received an injunction barring Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab device. Samsung agreed to stop advertising the device and won't sell its Galaxy Tab device in the Australian market until the lawsuit is resolved. If Apple loses its patent battle with Samsung in Australia, it agreed to pay Samsung unspecified damages. An initial trial date is set for August 29.

A Re-post On Some of My Issues.

Costs passed on to consumers

SO with all these law suits against all these manufacturers, I wonder if it would eventually have an impact on costs to consumers when buying any one of these company products (ie Samsung, Rim, HTC, etc).

Some of these companies may have some sort of insurance for this but ultimately legal costs keep escalating and eventually puts pressure on company profits, which in turn forces companies to raise prices.

Good going Apple!!
