Legal Well, that didn't take long. Groklaw notes several interesting inconsistencies and other issues with the jury verdict. "If it would take a lawyer three days to make sure he understood the terms in the form, how did the jury not need the time to do the same? There were 700 questions, remember, and one thing is plain, that the jury didn't take the time to avoid inconsistencies, one of which resulted in the jury casually throwing numbers around, like $2 million dollars for a nonfringement. Come on. This is farce." My favourite inconsistency: a Samsung phone with a keyboard, four buttons, and a large Samsung logo on top infringes the iPhone design patent. And yet, we were told (in the comments, on other sites) that the Samsung f700 was not prior art... Because it had a keyboard. I smell fish.

No one has to like the verdict. It wouldn't have been my personal decision, I'd have pushed for as little damages as possible and tried to invalidate both sides. But, like all contests, rise above your own views. Be a man, rather than whining about fairness. We all knew someone would win. If the shoe was on the other foot, you'd be wetting yourself over how right the world now was. Despite the humiliation you must feel after your self righteous bigoted twisting of every news story and all the gashing of teeth, it is a hollow victory for those of us that hated both sides of the coin and would rather have seen neither win. But, we'll be the bigger people and won't rub it in, even though we know you would have not been so kind to us.

You could have saved us all a boring read. You meant to say: "Tough shit"
