Looks like there will not be any calm between the patent battle between Apple and Samsung. After suing Apple in France for Samsung UMTS (3G) patent violations, Samsung has counter-sued Apple in Australia, where Apple seek to stop sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Samsung announced on Saturday that it has filed a case against Apple in Australia for it's violations of multiple mobile patents.

"To defend our intellectual property, Samsung filed a cross claim for Apple's violation of Samsung's wireless technology patents," Samsung Electronics spokesman Nam Ki-yung said.

Samsung has also
filed an appeal against a recent court ruling in Dusseldorf, Germany. where it upheld the ban of the sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany.

Apple and Samsung are involved in court cases all over the world and analysts believe that the two companies would come in to a technology sharing agreement.
