samsung-vs-apple | samsung apple verdict 2012

Recently Apple Inc scored a sweeping legal victory against the Samsung on Friday as a U.S. jury found that the one of the  Korean company had copied  the critical features of the iPhone and iPad and the usa won this verdict and  awarded the U.S. company $1.05 billion in damages.

According to Mashable-

The jury validated almost all of Apple’s claims against Samsung, for many different smartphones and tablets, putting the South Korean electronics giant on the hook for $1.049 billion. The jury also found that at least some of the infringement was “willful,” which helped lead to the high figure. (Take a look at the complete verdict form here.)

Among the Apple-patented features Samsung devices were found to have been infringing upon: the “bounce-back” that happens when you scroll to the end of a list, double-tap zoom, pinch-to-zoom as well as the design and iconography on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches.

The Samsung devices affected include the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, Nexus S, Mesmerize, Vibrant, Fascinate, Skyrocket, Continuum, Prevail, Infuse, Gem, Mesmerize, Indulge, Replenish, Epic 4G Touch and Droid Charge smartphones and the Galaxy Tab and Tab 10.1 tablets, among others. It’s not yet known what the fate of the infringing products will be.

The jury rejected Samsung’s claim that some of Apple’s patents should be declared invalid. The jury also rejected Samsung’s counterclaims, declaring that Apple did not infringe on Samsung’s patents with the iPhone and the iPod Touch.

Lawyers for both Apple and Samsung checked the form for any inconsistencies and found two. The jury awarded damages for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE but didn’t find it had infringed on any patents. Similarly, it awarded damages for the Intercept, but no infringement. The damages for those two products totaled about $2.2 million. Judge Lucy Koh sent the jury back to resolve those issues, and they returned saying those products didn’t infringe, negating those damages.

Apple and Samsung both have post-trial motions, and will return to court Sept. 20 to hear them out. The legal process in the case will certainly continue in appellate courts.
