A Silicon Valley court has recently ordered Samsung Electronics to pay Apple $290 million. The South Korean giant was accused of copying iPhone and iPad features. However, Apple might be disappointed, because the previous jury awarded Jobs’ company $1.05 billion, after which US District Judge ordered the new trial and tossed out $450 million of the damages.
Samsung may appeal the latest verdict, but also has to focus on a 3rd trial in March in order to consider Apple’s claims that Samsung’s newest devices also copied the technology.
Apple keeps making attempts to convince everyone that it was the one who invented the smartphone, so now anyone producing similar devices must have copied the idea. Although this point of view was quite successful in American courts, it had disappearing results in foreign courts, because judges there refused to believe that Steve Jobs invented the rounded rectangle.
In the meantime, Samsung has had mixed results in its fight against accusations. The company tried initially to sue Apple for using technology which were part of agreed standards and earned the wrath of the European Union. The company argued that Apple was misconstruing the breadth of its patents to include things like the basic rectangle shape of smartphones.
In response, Apple blamed Samsung’s copying for the reason that iPhones are not in everyone’s hands anymore, claiming that Apple can never get back to where it should have been in 2010.
Given that the case was fought just 15 minutes away from Apple's Cupertino headquarters, a number of prospective jurors were dismissed because of having links to the company. Still, Apple attorneys keep trying to inflame patriotic passions by urging jurors to help protect American companies from its foreign rivals.
The South Korean company again demanded a halt to the trial after the American Patent and Trademark Office told Apple it was going to invalidate a patent protecting the “pinch-to-zoom” technology. Apparently, this was one of the things that the jury had to consider. Although that defense didn’t work, it can form the basis for another appeal.

|Gossip is that following Apple's win in the mutual patent infringement case against Samsung, in which the jury assessed a $1 billion dollar fine, "Samsung paid Apple its fine by sending more than 30 trucks to Apple's headquarters loaded with nickels [5-cent pieces]".|
Now they are supposed to be sending only 10 trucks of nickels? L O L.

Btw, This two has in each other throat but also in each other pocket seeing that Apple are using Samsung's LCD and LED for couple of their products.
|thats not fair, apple is so anti-american unless it involves suing another company.|

|@Nan1977asdl .. although the IDEA is good, it would not work, as small change is legal tender ONLY UP TO FIVE DOLLARS.|
A BETTER idea would be to pay the fine in LOOSE 1 dollar bills, and let THEM sort, count and bundle all the loose notes.
|dovahkin, practically all end products use something from another company.|
apple only manufactures consumer appliances and not the components in them.
even a nokia cell base station has lucent chips in its transceivers.
the reason at&t split off its manufacturing division and renamed it lucent was because mci wouldn't buy their telephone network equipment when it was named at&t because they were a competitor.
and just like LG and samsung make at least 90 percent of all the worlds flat panels, even if you buy a Metz tv, metz is not making the parts, just assembling the tv as a unit to sell, its still made of samsung or LG panels, so why buy the metz when a samsung is cheaper and made with the same parts?
same as an iphone, why buy an iphone when almost all android phones are made with the same parts?
apple is just trying to make it harder for the competition any way it can.
xerox and ibm should be suing apple.
Samsung DID pay apples lawsuit with 5 cent coins. security personnel thought the trucks were a mistaken delivery until they got a call from the apple c.e o explaining.
The samsung c.e.o had commented "use the change in the vending machines, melt rhem down for computers. I dont care. My obligation was met and my bill is paid in full.
The article read that the underhanded move came with the intent of making apple count and sort the 20 billion coins the now own. Manpower and making sure a bank is able to take such a deposit. Lol

|@_Pound_it_Pro It never happened. The articles are well know fakes and so is the the youtube video.|

|How come Apple isn't suing Microcrap?|
They also use pinch to zoom as well...
This is the same tactic Microcrap tried to use when they sued and lost in court when they stated the word "windows" was theirs only...
Samsung could make that issue go away very easy in a software update; remove the pinch to zoom until the court case is over and use the tap to zoom only.
Another is Apple's claim to the rounded corner rectangle; jeez that would cover everything up and include buses and bldg.s...
|@4 incorrect if you have billions of nickels that is visable payment it may be not ideal for the person dealing with all them coins but if the denie to take it then thats on them coins = cash = money doesnt matter how many of them there are.|

|I'm a Sony guy but the more I read about this the more it makes me want to support Samsung.|
|I have a sumsung android (s3 model), and compareing this to the apple iphone well samsung wins all the way, compared to the iphone with the samsung you dont have to pay for 90% of the services you want/use as they free on android, (less expense), apple are always looking for ways to sue Samsung or another company, they should of predicted that so many years down the line apple phones will phase out because of newer better phones from far more reliable company's,|
also why doesn't apple pay Microsoft for there services like every other company??? They are saying that they, have windows based products yet they dont pay anything.... if apple wants to try and get back to where it was back in 2010 then they need to stop all these stupid law suits about products/services/devices (because end of the day if it wasn't samsung it would of been another company), they need to get back to the drawing board and come up with newer better instead of relying on the public to bring in the pennys as that wont happen unless they apple changes the perspective

|Lets see wich side i should pick|
Apple are amaizing quality, the only problem is that the Macs are highly expensives..but if you do buy Apple laptop your good you not gonna need another laptop for ten years
They copy everyone not just Apple ,violates patents, they cheat on benchmarks, they spy on their own costumers, they lie, they pay ordinary people to say to other peoples good things about their products or talk trash about their competition on WebSites (for Example "Sam" is one of them) ,they only invented one thing the "gimmick: "useless features" (1080p at 600ppi, eye traking, 13 MP, triple octa core),
they threat their own workers horible in Brazil and Slovakia (they even killed a person in Slovakia), they have terible name for a company SamZiungguu, they are phony and they suck, wait there is more if want to know more google it!
Easy choice Apple,
Apple keeps making attempts to convince everyone that it was the one who invented the smartphone,
Well they did invent the first smartphone it was called the iPhone wait you thought it was Samsung Milkyway Siii? no that was the first cheap (but not cheap) plastic phablet
but not just the iPhone Apple invented but also the first taplet PC "iPad", the first Laptop "Powerbook 100", the first PC "Apple II" the first operating system "Mac OS" and everything you know about PC they invented.
also im not a big Apple Fan, but please Apple take all their money atleast you invent stuff like iTV next year, i dont expect much invention from Sony, LG, Dell and others they dont have big revenues like Apple or SamSlu!t
|@Saff1 I have read the Steve Jobs book, and Apple did take a lot of ideas from Xerox as far as operating systems. But I agree with the quality, have had my Mac Pro for nearly 10 years now and it still runs up to date games on the Windows side with high quality graphics. Microshite have always been two steps behind. Everything they come up with is a half baked clone that looks like its right out of the 70's. Even the Xbox One looks like a Desktop PC against the elegence of the PS4|
|you pay so much for apple, Cuz of the serious hardware it needs to run that clunky junky apple OS which is easy to hack into|
and mac OS stands for OPEN SOURCE which tells you right there it's easy to hack!
|ford came out with the first car, but that doesn't mean their the best! Same with apple. actually the gov|
had computers before apple came out!
