**The Seoul court ruled on Apple VS Samsung case**
A South Korean court has ruled that U.S. technology giant Apple and its South Korean rival Samsung Electronics have infringed each other's patents for mobile devices.
The Seoul court said Friday that Apple infringed on two Samsung wireless patents, while Samsung violated one of Apple's design patents. It awarded small damages to each side and imposed a limited ban on the sale of each company's products in South Korea.
Notably, the court said that Samsung, now the world's largest mobile phone maker, did not copy the design of Apple's popular iPhone.
The case is part of a multibillion dollar global legal battle between the two technology powerhouses, and sets the stage for a major verdict expected to soon be delivered in a U.S. court.
** Greek PM Seeks More Time to Make Reforms, Cuts**
Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is expected to ask for more time to make key reforms and spending cuts to keep his recession-plagued country in the eurozone when he meets Friday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.
Mr. Samaras told the German newspaper Bild earlier this week that Greece is not seeking more money from its international creditors. He said Greece only wants a little more time to make spending cuts and reforms that would revive its economy and boost income.
However, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told German radio this week that more time would mean more money.
Mr. Samaras will take his diplomatic bid to Paris on Saturday for a meeting with French President Francois Hollande.
