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.

This BS, let's see I didn't invent the wheel but let's get a patent and sue everyone ...

I say Google needs to take of the gloves and get nasty with Moto's patent portfolio. Here's some filings against Apple by Moto

"On Friday, wholly-owned Google subsidiary Motorola Mobility announced the filing of a new (second) ITC complaint against Apple"
