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 love how the rhetoric shifts "submission" of evidence to "suppression." When Samsung was denied, it was often because Samsung was pursuing a new theory/narrative several months late, without notice. When they avoided "suppression" of evidence, the fanboys thought it shifted the case to a slam dunk -- when in reality it was weak sauce.
