A split decision ruling in Seoul District Court found Apple guilty of infringing two Samsung patents, reports The Wall Street Journal. As a result, Apple will be barred from selling its infringing products in South Korea; products that include the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, as well as the company's first and second generation iPads, reports Chosun. Apple will also need to pay Samsung the ridiculously small sum of ₩40 million in damages, about $35,000.
The verdict has not been finalized, making it unclear what Apple's recourse to the injunction might be. Samsung first filed suit against Apple in Korea for patent infringement in April of last year, after which Apple countersued, claiming Samsung infringed patents on its product design and user interface.
