Patent Case Jury Awards Rules Samsung should pay Apple over $1bn in damages

Patent Case Jury Awards Rules Samsung should pay Apple  over $1bn  in damages


Federal jury  San Jose, California

In April 2011,  Apple sued Samsung for "slavishly" copying the iPhone and iPad with its Galaxy lineup of devices.

Apple had asked the jury to award it $2.5 billion in damages for what it said was Samsung’s violation of a handful of patents related to the physical design and software functions of the iPhone and iPad.

In a countersuit, Samsung had demanded that Apple pay it $422 million for its own patent violations.

Samsung  lost its patent claims and was not awarded any damages.

The jury also found that Apple's iPhone and iPad tablet did not infringe any of the patents that Samsung had presented in the trial.

Those damages covered infringement on devices like the 

Samsung Epic 4G, 
Captivate, Galaxy S II, 
the Vibrant, and more.

The nine-person jury at the federal court in San Jose, California had to consider 700 questions about each sides' claim that its rival had infringed its intellectual property.

A jury has ruled that Samsung should pay Apple just over $1bn (£665m) in damages in an intellectual property lawsuit

The jury rejected Samsung's claims that several of its patents had been breached and awarded it no damages.
