Jury in Apple-Samsung trial makes corrections to verdict documents, leaves damages unchanged
posted by Maxwell R. / May 05, 2014, 8:39 PM
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. http://www.idownloadblog.com/2

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.

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.

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.
