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.

Has it occured to anyone that this decision could be motivated by some sort of nationalism ?


By the way, in last The Verge article before the verdict I did notice the following sentence, where Apple attorney McElhinny said:
If you find Samsung infringed, "you will have reaffirmed the American patent system,"

Even the current patent system is a 'product' to be patriotically proud of! Unbelievable.
