The S. Korean version of Apple (AAPL) vs. Samsung (SSNLF.PK) ends in (dis)honors basically even, with a court ruling that Apple violated 2 patents and Samsung 1. The court also says there was "no possibility" consumers would confuse the firms' smartphones. Judges awarded small damages to both companies and banned sales of infringing devices in South Korea, none of which are latest models.

    dab3z, you summed it up in a nut shell! Samsung and LG got a pass to copy and knock- off competitors products. Regardless of whether you where the first mover to the market with your products. So going forward from here let's see what innovation they bring to the table!

    This non-decision was to be expected in Korea.

     

    We'll see if Samsung can copy the iphone5.
