South Korean Court Rules That Apple Infringed On Samsung’s Patents

According to the Wall Street Journal, a Seoul court ruled that Apple has infringed on two of Samsung’s patents. In addition, Apple must stop selling the  infringing products in South Korea. Apple isn’t the only one at fault here, as the court also ruled that Samsung had infringed upon Apple’s “bounceback” patent. According to the WSJ’s Evan Ramstad:

Looks like a split decision overall in South Korea court, but Samsung faring better than Apple with judges.

In addition, Reuters reports that Apple has been given a small fine of roughly $35,400.

    I’m guessing the Korean Court didn’t factor in the fact that Samsung was obligated to provide a license for said patents under reasonable terms. Which they did not do. This ruling is faulty Apple did in the past try to negotiate but Samsung’s “Reasonable terms” were no where to be found.

    War between Samsung and Apple is on a great height and will be intensified in coming future. In fact Samsung is giving a good fight to Apple.
