Samsung loses in patent case

Written by Nick Farrell



Apple can sell its toys within South Korea

Samsung has lost a court battle to keep the fruity cargo cult Apple from sending its missionaries to South Korea. Samsung wanted to ban older models of the iPhone and iPad in South Korea claiming that Apple had infringed on three of its patents.

A judge at the Seoul Central District Court said Apple products such as the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPad2 did not violate Samsung patents on short message display methods and messaging grouping features. The court ruled against a sale ban on the products and threw out Samsung's claim for $95,100 in damages.

Samsung said it would thoroughly review the ruling before deciding to whether to appeal.

"As Apple has continued to infringe our patented mobile technologies, we will continue to take the measures necessary to protect our intellectual property rights," Samsung said in a statement.

It was better news for Samsung in Germany where a Mannheim court in Germany dismissed Apple's claim that Samsung infringed on a utility patent that pertains to a multi-language function used in smartphones.
