Supreme Court Throws Out Apple's $339 Million Patent Infringement Ruling Against Samsung

The United States Supreme Court has thrown out a $339 million patent infringement ruling Apple previously won against Samsung, reports Reuters.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday sided with Samsung in its big-money smartphone patent fight with Apple, throwing out an appeals court ruling that said the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American rival for copying key iPhone designs.

In an 8-0 decision, the Supreme Court sent the case back to a lower court for further proceedings. It held that a patent infringer doesn't always have to give over the entire profits from sales of products that use stolen designs, if the designs only cover certain components rather than the whole product.

This proves that the government still holds a grudge against Apple not sharing its security encryption and would rather side with the Koreans in the process just to prove a point.

The supreme court is made up of a bunch of 80 yr old farts that have been in the judicial system for 60 years. We need a FRESH YOUNG aspect. We need to throw these old farts out of office already

Well, that's not how it works. Unless you're planning a coup, that's the system we have in place.

Wow 8:0 there was no doubt to the judges that Apple talks BS.

No, it's not BS, just that Apple can't sue for 100% of profits. There is no doubt Samsung copied the iPhone by having access to the blueprints as a component vendor, the dispute is over the amount of money awarded.
