    The legal battle between Apple and Samsung is in full swing and far from being over. If previous courts from various locations all over the world have ruled in Apple’s favor, now it seems that Samsung is being rejected its lawsuit against Apple in its home turf, South Korea.

    The Seoul Central District Court has dismissed Samsung’s lawsuit claiming Apple had infringed on three of Samsung's mobile patents. Thus, Samsung has lost its bid to ban sales of older iPhone and iPad in South Korea. Apple said the following in a recent statement:

    and here’s what Samsung had to say:

    If you lost track of these countless lawsuits, you should know that it all started back in 2011, when Apple first sued Samsung for copying the look and feel of the iPhone and iPad.

    According to Judge Shim Woo-yong, the technology in two of Samsung’s patents could easily be independently developed by other companies, which makes it unlikely that they were copied. Samsung was also fined 25 million won ($23,725) for violating a patent relating to the bouncing-back function when scrolling electronic documents.

    When do you think this battle will end?

    Apple is taking over. Even in their own turf, people buy iPhones more than samsung phones now.

    I think this battle will end very soon. Apple is already targeting their own home turf, and even their won their people. I think it would be aoon before damsung beceomes bankrupt.
