Samsung Vs Apple : Samsung ordered to pay to Apple $1.05B in patent case

It’s a Big win for Apple in patent fight against rival Samsung – After a year of scorched-earth litigation, a jury decided Friday that Samsung ripped off the innovative technology used by Apple to create its revolutionary iPhone and iPad.

In this Samsung Vs Apple case, the jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion in the latest skirmish of a global legal battle between the two tech giants and the jury rejected all Samsung’s claims against Apple.

Here is an official statement from Samsung regarding the verdict

Today’s verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices. It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies. Consumers have the right to choices, and they know what they are buying when they purchase Samsung products. This is not the final word in this case or in battles being waged in courts and tribunals around the world, some of which have already rejected many of Apple’s claims. Samsung will continue to innovate and offer choices for the consumer.

Let’s see where this Samsung Vs Apple battle will end!
