Apple vs. Samsung: inside a jury’s nightmare

Fantastic work by The Verge. “Although Apple and Samsung did their best to present high-level narratives about copying and product development throughout the trial, the jury’s work is far more complicated than simply asking if Samsung copied Apple. Instead, the 20-page verdict form presents around 700 extremely specific questions, divided into 33 groups. These questions exhaustively cover everything at issue in the trial, down to exact dollar amounts Samsung might owe for each of 28 devices accused of copying Apple intellectual property.” I don’t know just how much power a US jury has, but if I were them, I’d buy a tl;dr stamp and use it on every page of the verdict form. Samsung and Apple ought to be ashamed of themselves.
