South Korean Court Bans Apple and Samsung Old Products

Published: August 24, 2012

A South Korean Court ruled today that Apple and Samsung infringed some of each other's patents and that therefore both companies must remove some of their products from that country's stores.

Stating that Apple infringed two Samsung patents and that Samsung violated one from Apple, the sentence of the three-judge Court also ordered both companies to pay each other a monetary compensation of less than forty thousand dollars in both cases.

According to the sentence, Apple will have to remove from the South Korean market the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4, the iPad 1 and the iPad 2, while Samsung will have to remove a set of ten products that includes the Galaxy S2.

Apple's claim that Samsung had copied its products' design was denied.

Neither the iPhone 4S by Apple nor the Galaxy S3 by Samsung were affected by the ruling of the Court.
