Samsung has opened a fresh salvo in its ongoing legal battle with Apple by seeking to ban Apple from selling the iPhone 4S in Australia and Japan.

It marks an escalation in an ongoing global tussle between the two electronics giants over alleged patent infringements from both camps.

This has seen courts in Australia and Germany block sales of the Samsung galaxy Tab 10.1 and just last week a US court ruled that Samsung’s tablets infringed patents owned by Apple – although the firm must prove the validity of those patents before any injunction can be served.

Samsung’s fightback has already seen the Korean electronics firm seek a block on Apple sales in France and Italy.
