Courts act to strengthen patent protection

When searching for the term ‘patent infringement litigation’ on Google, the results are likely to include a Wikipedia link, news about recent high-profile US lawsuits, links to law firm websites and patent blog posts. Only if you add the word ‘Korea’ to the search does substantive information on patent litigation in that country appear. Many of those search results reference the infamous Apple v Samsung litigation, which captured the attention of so many legal scholars, tech geeks and even common consumers.
