Why Samsung devices shouldn't be banned in Australia

The Apple, Samsung US patent ruling could eventually see some Samsung products taken off the shelves here in Australia. But for the sake of continuing innovation and keeping our devices prices competitive, let's hope that this doesn't happen.

A California jury decision requires Samsung to pay Apple $1 billion for infringement of intellectual property and some of Samsung's products may have to be withdrawn. The decision will strengthen Apple's competitive position not just in America, but in all those countries which recognise American intellectual property rights. This decision is a reminder of how difficult it is to develop universal rules which maximise the benefits of globalisation.
