Samsung loses patent lawsuit in S. Korea against Apple
SEOUL, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- Samsung Electronics, the world's No. 1 smartphone maker, lost the patent lawsuit in South Korea with its archrival Apple after a Seoul court ruled that the iPhone maker did not violate Samsung's patents.
The Seoul Central District Court ruled Thursday that among three patents Samsung claimed Apple infringed on, two patents cannot be accepted as Samsung's unique, leading-edge technology and the other cannot be viewed as the same technology between Samsung and Apple.
