Samsung won a small victory against Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) in South Korea on Friday when a judge said the company didn’t copy the look and feel of Apple’s iPhone, but rather, the iPhone infringed on Samsung’s wireless technology.

Madison Square Garden Co.’s (NASDAQ:MSG) shares rose 5 percent. Before the bell on Friday, the company announced its fourth-quarter earnings beat estimates. Helping Madison Square Garden’s numbers was the New York Rangers and the New York Knicks playoff games.
