Worldwide patent battle between phone and tablet makers sees more products banned from shops
A range of Apple and Samsung phones and tablets have been banned from sale in South Korea following a split decision in a court in Seoul.
Samsung has been banned from selling the Galaxy S, Galaxy SII and Galaxy Nexus smartphones with its Galazy Tab and Galazy 10.1 tablets also banned.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Samsung infringed Apple's patent on bounce-back technology; the effect used when scrolling to the edge of a picture of web page. Samsung claimed that Apple didn't pay a fee when using some of its wireless communication technology.
The court said consumers would never confuse Samsung and Apple phones and that Samsung's phone icons don't infringe Apple patents.
Judges ordered Apple to pay 20 million won (£11m) for each violated patent. Samsung was ordered to pay 25 million won (£14m).
Such sums are dwarfed by the amounts being sought by both companies in the US, where Apple is seeking more than £1.6 billion from Samsung for violating its patents.
