Judge Lucy Koh cuts jury award by $450 million, orders second damages trial in Apple v. Samsung

0. phoneArena 01 Mar 2013, 15:30 posted on

Judge Lucy Koh has just entered an order that cuts $450 million from the $1,05 billion that the jury awarded Apple in last year's patent trial; in addition, the judge ordered that a second trial be held to determine the new damage amount to replace the damage award that the judge has just vacated but that triak won't occur until after Samsung's appeal is heard...

$450 million for infringing a color and a geometric shape patent still sounds ridiculous though. Samsung owes Appple no shyt.

Exactly. Shapes and colors are reasons for suing another company. Do they not know that phones before the original iPhone had rounded corners? *cough* LG Prada *cough*

Yes, shapes and colors that make it obvious that something was copied are grounds for a lawsuit. Welcome to the real world.

And have you even seen the LG Prada? Those corners don't look very round.

A common geometric shape and color cannot be patented, period, and you know that... the shape of a car is much much more intricate, a shape of a toilet bowl is a lot more intricate as well....the Coca Cola bottle was patented because of its unique shape and rightfully so....

You're absolutely right, common geometric shapes cannot be patented, which is why Apple doesn't have any patents on common geometric shapes.

Well, toilet bowl's shape can be patented.

There might be rumor anytime soon that iToilet is to be square shape with slightly rounded corners ;P

I believe the Coca Cola red is patented. In extremely rare cases, colors can be patented but black is not one of them and you have to prove you mixed the pigments to make a completely new color. Apple has no legitimate argument in their case over color.

I think its a silly argument, its like Chrysler sueing everyone else for copying the mini van.

Or like Kodak sueing everyone else who made a digital camera

or like kleenex sueing all other facial tissue makers

yes shapes are important but when it's just the way phones look its silly

This has got to be the best post to show an Apple fan to show them they don't invent anything. They haven't innovated anything since 2010 with the iPhone 4.

yes I believe they have, but most people have steve jobs distortion field amped up and think they invented more than they actually did. Listen apple is a good intagrater and they are good at getting people to adopt their technology. They are the are the best marketing company ever! they have also built a robust ecosystem for developers. For me its still the same question open or closed? open thank you!

The end result still shouldn't be that much, but finally Judge John finally came to her senses and was smart enough to lower the jury award.
