Jury Verdict: Samsung Owes Apple $290 Million in Additional Damages

Posted by · 7578 views · Translate

A federal jury has ruled that Samsung owes Apple $290 million in damages for infringing on its patents, reports AllThingsD.

The award concludes a partial retrial of last year’s landmark case between the electronics giants. A jury in that case ruled in Apple’s favor and awarded $1 billion in damages. However, Judge Lucy Koh ruled that more than $400 million of that award was improperly calculated, necessitating the current retrial. Apple had argued it was due a further $379 million, while Samsung maintained it should only owe $52 million for the portion of damages being reconsidered. Barring a successful appeal, Samsung also owes roughly $600 million in damages from the original verdict as well.

The jury was made up of six women and two men. They took nearly three days before reaching a verdict. Judge Koh is giving lawyers for each side half an hour to look over the jury's calculations.

The damages trial made headlines yesterday after Samsung lawyers requested a mistrial on the grounds that Apple's lawyer, Harold McElhinny, made a prejudiced remark in his statement to the jury. That request was denied.

Lucian... Wigga PLS! 'Shameless design rip-off' is an Asian sport for MANY decades now, including Shameshagg! And that's something the whole planet is aware of, so stop supporting these 'poor unsuspecting' companies and their lousy excuses ... "Wow! Such lie! My device much original! Me noooo copy! No nononono!"

I understand where youare coming from. But i disagree with your arguments. First we do not know which company holds the copyright. Green call button, rounded corner design, multi touch screen etc etc. all of things Apple tends to have coptyright, were already made by other companies like Samsung and LG. even look at LG Prada. Looks exaxtly same as iPhone with all the functionality and yet it came out ahead of iPhones too. Just because Apple outsold a product, they dont receive any right to hold a copyright.

Sorry kids. I dont support either Apple nor Samsung. I mean I like both companies' products but I dont go all nerd trying to defend either ones. Because Im realistic and criticize Apple's action on lawsuit cases doesnt make me into samsung fan or some sort. Make some intellect comments please.
