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.

ASML likes to sue also. Ask Nikon how they feel about that. But I guess ASML is special and it's ok if they defend their patents but Apple can't defend their patents that they got legally. And we appreciate you all investing in the US, more money for us. Thanks. :-)
