Samsung disappointed by the court’s decision

Samsung said. As Apple has continued to infringe our patented mobile technologies, we will continue to take the measures necessary to protect our intellectual property rights.

Apple did not respond to our request to comment for this story.

South Korea’s courts don’t have a reputation for protecting intellectual property, noted Michael Lasky, a patent attorney with the Altera Law Group.

It is well known that South Korea is a country where it is very hard to get meaningful patent protection,” Lasky told MacNewsWorld.

That goes back to a time when South Korean companies benefited by weak patent laws so that copying was easy to do,” he said. “Of course, now the tables have turned, and South Korean companies have a lot to protect, but the system has not yet come around.”
