Apple and Samsung must stop selling some of their gadgets in South Korea, Bloomberg reports, after a Seoul court found the two companies infringed on each other’s patents. Apple was found to have violated two Samsung patents regarding the transmission of mobile data, while Samsung violated an Apple patent regarding a touchscreen feature. This ruling alone won’t have a tremendous impact, as it doesn’t apply to recent products from either company. But it’s a timely reminder that while many of us are focused on the U.S. patent trial between the two, there are countless patent squabbles in tech going on all over the world.
