Apple Rejects Samsung Tablet Settlement Proposal

Reuters: Apple has formally rejected Samsung’s offer to settle their ongoing Australian patent dispute out of court. Samsung offered to remove two of the features which Apple said violated its patents, leaving just one disputed patent. Apple refused to agree. “The main reason we are here is to prevent the launch (of the Galaxy tablet) and maintain the status quo,” said Apple lawyer Steven Burley.

Samsung said that if it can’t get a ruling on the case by mid-October–in time to launch the Galaxy tablet for Christmas sales–then this version of the Galaxy tab would be “commercially dead” in Australia.
