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.

I suspect the jurors saw that it was Friday afternoon, and delivered a classic "We want to get the hell out of here" verdict.

It's quite obvious that they were in a hurry. Why? They found Nexus S to infringe on a claim that it does not implement...
