A Seoul court rejected Samsung’s claim that iPhone and iPad models violated three of its patents, another setback for the Korean electronics giant in a global battle with Apple over rights to technologies that power smartphones and tablets.
The Seoul Central District Court ruled on Thursday that Apple did not infringe on Samsung patents related to text messaging saying the technology in two could easily be independently developed by others and the third was not used in the iPad.
Immediately following the ruling, the legal delegation representing Samsung said that they would appeal.
The ruling is the latest legal blow to Samsung, which owes Apple 930 million U.S. dollars from two jury verdicts in the U.S, both of which Samsung is seeking to appeal.
The world’s top two smartphone makers have waged legal battles over mobile devices since 2011.
