As reported earlier this week, Australian court as ordered Apple to share details of contracts signed with Australian carriers with Samsung. Aiming to stall the sales of iPhone 4S in Australia, Samsung has sought information about subsidies that Apple receives from carriers. Samsung wants to see if the amounts of subsidies result to anti-competitive behavior. Samsung is also demanding to know the source code of iPhone 4S
With the legal battle between Samsung and Apple becoming a saga of several lawsuits and counter-lawsuits, some new characters are entering the storyline. As some of the patents are subject to FRAND (Fair, Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory) licensing terms, Samsung may find itself in a difficult position.
