Google One company's response to the jury verdict in Apple vs. Samsung was still missing: Google's. The company has now responded to The Verge, and there's almost a certain bitterness in their language. Not, as you would expect, directed at Apple; no, the bitterness is directed at Samsung. The message Google is sending to other Android OEMs? Stick to stock Android, and you'll have no problems.

Verdict standing? Not Likely...

While IANAL, from what I see over at Groklaw the jury's verdict would be very hard for the court to let stand; especially with statements by jurors that they (i) ignored the court's instructions and advice on rendering a verdict, (ii) the foreman of the jury related his own experience regarding patents (e.g. uncontested, unapproved testimony) which they then relied on for their verdict, and more.

So, even if Judge Koh does lets it stand, expect it to be overturned on appeal, along with a number of other rulings.
