Legal And just like that, within a matter of days, the jury has reached a verdict in Apple vs. Samsung. The basic gist is simple: Apple's software patents are valid, and many Samsung devices infringe upon them. Apple's iPhone 3G trade dress is valid, and Samsung's Galaxy S line infringes, but other devices did not. Samsung did not infringe Apple's iPad design patent. Apple did not infringe any of Samsung's patents. Apple is awarded a little over $1 billion in damages. Competition lost today, and developers in the United States should really start to get worried - software patents got validated big time today.

It really is tiresome with this highly biased "reporting" throughout the trial.

There are rules. Courts test them. Apple won. Samsung lost. That means Samsung was in the wrong (and Apple may be on other counts once the details are out).

Scream all you want from your soapbox, Thom. You won't change reality. At best you will cost OSNews some of its readership.
