Jury: Samsung infringed on at least one Apple patent; Apple awarded $119.6 million
0. phoneArena 02 May 2014, 19:48 posted on
A jury in the second Federal patent trial between Apple and Samsung, concluded that the latter did infringe on at least one Apple patent. But unlike the verdict in the first case, which ended up with Apple awarded nearly $930 million following a second jury trial related to the damages awarded, the jury on Friday concluded that Samsung must pay Apple the much smaller figure of $119.6 million...

You forgot Dolly Parton's 9to5, which is probably more appropriate given this travesty of justice or iNjustice!!
Samsung shouldn't pay them a penny. Apple should be grateful to Samsung because if it were not for Samsung you guys would still be on iPhone 3GSX.

Thanks for the tip...this lil nuggest was posted at 9to5mac:
Apple was found guilty in the case of Samsung patent ’239, which deals with streaming video during FaceTime calls.
The court also ruled that Apple had infringed on some of Samsung’s property and awarded the Korean company $158,400 in damages.
So....seems Samsung can use some of the money from this to pay for what they owe...
Overall so far...Samsung found guilty on 2....mixed results on 1...not guilty on other 2..
Apple found guilty on 1, not guilty on another...
Let the fanboys wars begin!!!!

I'm confused about how apple can "infringe" on a patent and only have to pay 160k, versus 119million. I mean FT is one of apples signature apps. So it seems like the valuation would be much higher there vs. sammy.

Because the Judge is in Apple's pocket.
Also, how can Samsung be liable for Apple's patent on the SS Gal Nexus when it is a 100% Android device. Samsung did not supply any SW for it.

Apple's patents are expensive 119 million and samsung only 158400.... so only apple's patents are worthy, other company's patents are not worthy... still its a small win for samsung bcoz its proved that apple copy too

Title of this post is missleading... it should be"Apple Also Found Infringing Samsung's Patents"

It's not true...verdict has yet to be released
4. brrunopt (Posts: 742; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)
let me guess; they will decide in favor of apple ...
5. jroc74 (Posts: 6014; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
Title says Samsung infringes on at least 1 patent....
If after all this and its only for 1 patent....this was almost an absolute waste of time. And should be alot less than 2.2 billion.....
Cant wait for further details.

Samsung is not happy for that.
Even $1 paid for such a BS trial, is offending. Even if Google pay it, it's a stain on Samsung, not on Google(US).
That's what Apple want. They know that trey will lose in the tech batle, so they try to bite Samsung's honor(just to keep the iZombies united, and not to run away).
7. jroc74 (Posts: 6014; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
Ok....title update says Apple has been awarded...119 million....
Wow...thats a wee bit less than 2.2 billion....lol. I cant wait to find out what this one patent was...
9. jroc74 (Posts: 6014; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
Ok....read my other reply....seen more info about the ruling after posting this....

"The first verdict read was for patent 5,946,647, Apple’s “data detectors” that transform typed text such as addresses into actionable links. Samsung was found guilty of infriging on this patent in all devices listed in the suit."
"The next patent in question was number 8,074,172, which deals with how autocorrect suggests words. Here the jury found Samsung guilty of infringing Apple’s intellectual property."
"In the case of patent 8,046,721, a gesture-based unlock screen (“slide to unlock”), the jury returned mixed results. Samsung was found to infringe on some of its devices, but not all of them."
"The court also ruled that Apple had infringed on some of Samsung’s property and awarded the Korean company $158,400 in damages."

ReCode says the amount can be increased from $120m since n thee infringement was 'wilful'
67. jroc74 (Posts: 6014; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
I hope thats the same case for what Apple owes too.
Face Time feature vs every patent Apple was suing over....The amounts really should be reversed.
10. jroc74 (Posts: 6014; Member since: 30 Dec 2010)
With the '721 patent, some Samsung devices, like the Samsung GALAXY Nexus were found to have infringed on it.
Ok.....that was stock Android.......
Which reminds me....I wonder if this is one of the patents Google will cover the loss on.

As a current Galaxy Nexus owner this is Total BS!! Did any of the jurors even use this phone to come to that conclusion!?

FCK YOU APPLE. FCK YOU JUDGE KOH/JURIES.
14. jellmoo (Posts: 1643; Member since: 31 Oct 2011)
Um... Is that really necessary? A jury reached a decision after weighing the evidence, and the monetary award is *way* less than Apple was seeking.
I can't for the life of me understand your reaction.
18. The-Sailor-Man (banned) (Posts: 1095; Member since: 25 Mar 2014)
What "evidence"? BS patents that can be patented only in US and only by Apple. And existing in the stock Android?(Google is US company- so no problem there)
What Samsung is to be blamed, or punished? Oooh wait...I get it...they smash Apple litle by little.
23. jellmoo (Posts: 1643; Member since: 31 Oct 2011)
Again, there is a lot of opinion being flung around about what is or is not a valid patent. I happen to agree that the patent system in the US is ridiculously broken.
But the jury is limited by patent law. They made their decision based on it to the best of their abilities. Whether you or I agree with the decision is moot. Insulting the jury for having done their job, and odds are one they never wanted is completely unnecessary.

I highly doubt they could find enough intelligent people to sit on a jury, nowadays..lol
