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.

US verses foreigen company

Member since:

The jurors sided with a US company, and thought that this case was "foreigners" against the US. Samsung didn't have chance to win. I wonder how much of the evidence they even understood - they made a decision very quickly probably they couldn't care, they just wanted it to be over and sided with the US company.
