Sydney Morning Hearld quoted the judgment:
Samsung will be permitted to launch the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia provided it keeps accounts of all transactions involving that device in Australia.
Samsung’s Australian Subsidiary says “it is pleased with today’s unanimous decision”. Reacting to that Apple plans on appealing to the High court.
