Jury in Apple-Samsung trial makes corrections to verdict documents, leaves damages unchanged
Friday’s verdict in the latest installment of the Apple-Samsung soap opera seemed like a close to the chapter in a drama that will forever haunt our lives. However, there was an error on the jury’s verdict form.  The error was an oversight on one of the patents. It was basically left out of the final tally.

The jury returned to the courthouse on Monday and made the necessary corrections to the paperwork.  The jury ruled that Samsung had also infringed on the forgotten item, and awarded Apple $4 million.

However, instead of adding $4 million to the final tally, it shuffled other numbers from the awarded damages around and left the final bill at the previously reported $119.5 million.  So, even though Apple was seeking at least $2 billion in damages, and even though the jury made an error in their arguably slap-on-the-wrist judgments, and even though the jury forgot one of the patents in dispute and had to account for damages, the outcome remains the same.

With these final corrections, now we can close the latest chapter in a world that is Apple and Samsung. As Samsung is appealing the $900+ million ruling against it from the previous litigation, it is probably likely we may see both sides appeal this as well. That means we will ever more be in a world that is Apple versus Samsung.

In related news: Samsung gets a visit by government / police officials (after not cooperating) so Samsung employees switch out all the computers and literally eat and swallow documented evidence.

Samsung will get their money back by raising the price of Apples' SoC again. So in the end Samsung and their employees, will win the war, gaining more publicity and Apple will just have to swallow the price hike... The only winners are the lawyers for Apple. O.o

Phonearena is looking for new authors and I guess this is your audition. However, when passing along troll articles against Samsung......you may want to avoid stories from 2010 about price fixing. Price fixing is Apple's thing in 2014. I guess you're saying that whether it's larger screens, notifications, group play, or price fixing...Apple loves copying Samsung. They are indeed good artists.

Can't see Dunham's statement anywhere, I think it would have made sense if it was included in the article. Anyway, even when both parties had their fair share Samsung might go on with their unethical ways. I can also see a pending appeal if Apple doesn't settle with Samsung, the data detectors patent that Samsung infringed on is also being used on newer devices like the Galaxy s4, note 3 & s5.

Both companies are unethical, Apple was found guilty of fixing prices on ebooks. Both should walk away and let the courts handle more important cases, like putting hardcore criminals behind bars.

The ironic thing is that Apple deserves to have some large company copy them. Apple has a history of stealing from others that is decades long.

What goes around, comes around.

Exactly, these trials are a big waste of time...makes Apple look worse with each passing year.

Even though it's a BIAS but samsung did a lot of bad things in the pass such as steal sharp technology for its tv and also steal pioneer Plasma technology and caused pioneer to shut down its tv business. Further more , galaxy s series really did a lot of copycat from iPhone you can see it from the packaging to its software . I think samsung really deserve it and I do own a S4 and iPhone 4s.

The point here is that every company copies one another but it seems to me that apple is claiming that their so called innovation is the legit one.
