Apple and Samsung have both infringed each other’s patents on mobile devices, a South Korean court ruled today. Judges in Seoul said U.S. based Apple had infringed two patents held by Samsung, while the Korean technology giant had violated one of Apple’s patents.
While most of the tech blogosphere was focused squarely on the Apple/Samsung case verdict in California, judgment was returned in another case in Samsung’s home turf of South Korea.
Apple was ordered to remove the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad and iPad 2 from sale in South Korea; the panel of judges said that Apple infringed two of Samsung’s wireless technology patents.
A split decision ruled that Samsung violated Apple’s “bounce back” patent, which affects scrolling functionality – Samsung was ordered to pull the Galaxy S2 and other devices that use that feature.
