South Korean court stays ban on Apple iPhone and Apple iPad
Apple has won a stay in South Korea against the sales ban of certain iOS products like the Apple iPhone 3GS, the Apple iPhone 4, and the first two Apple iPad models. The Seoul Central District Court had issued the ban in August after ruling that Samsung and Apple had infringed on each others' patents. Both firms were ordered to stop selling certain smartphones and tablets in the country.

The ban against the Apple iPhone 3GS and other iOS devices in South Korea is temporarily stayed

Last month, the Seoul Central District Court accepted Apple's request for a stay on the ban of its products, which it just issued on Wednesday. Samsung has not requested a stay on the ban of its products although the company could still seek a stay in the future. Seoul based Samsung spokesman Nam Ki Yung had no comment nor did Steve Park, a spokesman for Apple also based in Seoul. Samsung products banned in South Korea include the Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. Also banned are the Samsung GALAXY Tab and Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 tablets.

Meanwhile, Samsung and Apple are continuing to square off against each other in courtrooms on four continents.

No. Actually, Samsung won the injunction and Apple won a stay on the injunction., It is written correctly.

As for Samsung, they also have some devices that are banned and as of yet, they have not yet asked for a stay.

Ban in S.korean... that is minor /small scratch, yes not a dent but a scratch to Apple. If Samsung punch where it hurt is N.Ametica and Europe, where the nations have strong economic and money.

Good luck with that. They don't have mindshare:

Add to that, they don't have any patents they can hurt Apple with. That, coupled with the fact that SGS3's are piling up in the channel much faster than they are selling:

Samsung's star is fading.

When Apple bans a device they're Judas, but when Samsung do it their Jesus. In the end it's the consumer who gets hurt because they're being stripped from choices.

how often do you see other companys trying to ban another. you pretty much just see apple trying to ban its rivals due to pathetically vague patents and patenting the use of others technology so you get mad and claim its limiting the choices for the consumer but apple does the same thing. no company should be able to ban the competitions products.
