BBC News - Apple and Samsung get South Korea bans
The court imposed a limited ban on national sales of products by both companies covered by the ruling.
It ruled that US-based Apple had infringed two patents held by Samsung, while the Korean firm had violated one of Apple's patents.
The decision comes as a jury in California is deliberating on a patent trial between the two firms in the US.
The sales ban will apply to Apple's iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and its tablets the iPad and iPad 2.
Samsung products affected by the ban include its smartphone models Galaxy SI and SII and its Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet PCs.
The court ordered Apple to pay 40m won ($35,000; £22,000) in damages to its South Korean rival, while Samsung was told to pay Apple 25m won.
The awards are dwarfed by the damages being sought by Apple in its case in California. It is seeking more than $2.5bn (£1.6bn) from Samsung, for allegedly violating its patented designs and features in the iPad and iPhone.
