The Supreme Court has overturned Apple’s $400 million award in its long-running patent lawsuit against Samsung. Apple won the case in 2012, convincing a federal court that a number of Samsung devices had infringed upon iPhone design patents – including one for a rectangular device with rounded corners and bezels, and another for a home screen comprised of a grid of colorful apps. The Supreme Court’s decision today does not reverse Apple’s win, but does mean that the case will be returned to the Federal Circuit so that the damages can be reassessed.
Yeah, this thing is still going on.
This only proves one thing: Lawyers, clearly, have nothing better to do. Why do these fools get paid so much to do nothing of value whatsoever? I’m directing this to both sides. All these billions squandered could go to, oh I don’t know, improving your products.
