Samsung seeks retrial of retrial; claims Apple used racial tactics to appeal to jury

0. phoneArena 17 Dec 2013, 12:39 posted on

Last month, a jury ruled that Samsung should pay Apple $290 million for infringing on Apple's patents. This was the result of a retrial between the two rivals that had been ordered by Judge Lucy Koh after the jury in the original patent trial made some mistakes when they awarded damages. Judge Koh had vacated $410 million of the original $1.05 billion awarded to Apple...

C'mon Apple and Sammy, this was stupid when it started, then it went insane, then it went laughable, and now it's not funny anymore.

copying what? making better designs then apple? Samsung has been making tablets and phones much longer then apple. Apple is just angry it cant compete. Apple acts like their was another design they could have used or something. I hate tell them this but how else did you expect phones to look? triangle? complete circles? oh wait how about a cylinder.. come on. and to people that understandand R&D for htem to copy apple there designs would have come out years after not mere months

You've got to understand, to Mxy when Apple takes an idea that someone else did first (like the GUI, grids of icons, slide to unlock, fingerprint unlock, wifi direct, drop down notification, quick setting toggles, etc...), it's innovation. When anyone does the same thing with something Apple did, it's the worst kind of copying.

Incorrect. You mean, if only apple had stopped with the copying. See:http://everythingisaremix.info/blog/everything-is-a-remix-case-study-the-iphone

Bug off, troll. Everyone copies everyone, only Apple tries to lie and claim they're original while suing everyone else.

Neither the creator of the video, or you seem to understand the term "patentability".

The only one to blame is Apple. It wasn't Samsung that started with the lawsuits.

Not as low as leaking confidential information to other parts of its company in order to gain competitive advantage over its rivals.

Thus disobeying an explicit order from the court.

A punishment is due, and it HAS TO hurt.

Not as low as Apple not even creating any of the dubious things it shouldn't even have patents on that are explicitly not original.

Like oh, everything they're suing over?

I think both companies can go shove it. Our tax dollars should at least go to something a bit less pointless.

Here's the perfect way to handle this judge, throw out the case don't award any damages to either party. Send them both out here to Las Vegas to the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino let them lace up the gloves, beat the crap out of each other in the ring, and whoever wins wins. End of discussion. I'm all for it.

We All Loved it when Apple joined the Smartphone Market,but Apple do not seem to like being Under Pressure an someone doing better than them,Why?didn"t they join the Tennis League as they love going to The Courts,Samsung have really got to stop helping Apple now as they are just using them to much,then Apple will struggle an find a new supplier with not the same Top Class products Samsung produce

Samsung just keeps doing whatever it can to delay cutting that check why don't it just give up and write that check ugh I'm sure $930 million is chump change to a company with super deep pockets. They probably can just write it off. I'm not trying to sound like I'm taking Apple's side because I'm not. I have Samsung devices and I'm using one now but I'm just tired of this legal drama
