Apple jury didn’t want to give Samsung ‘just a slap on the wrist’

As many of you already know by now, the jury in the Apple-Samsung patent case has delivered their verdict, and they're making Samsung pay up. Of course, Apple isn't getting the full amount it was suing for - a face-melting $2.45 billion - but Samsung is still being forced to pay the very significant amount of $1.05 billion.

Samsung’s damages decrease slightly as Koh sets date for injunction hearing

Samsung took a pretty major blow when the jury in its patent case against Apple delivered their verdict today. Apple was awarded damages exceeding $1 billion, and even though that isn't as much as the iPhone maker was looking for, it's still a pretty hefty amount for Samsung to have to pay. However, after the verdict was delivered, there were a couple of inconsistencies the jury had to address. In their verdict, the jurors awarded Apple damages for the Samsung Intercept's infringement on the company's '915 utility patent, while it was also awarded damages for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE's infringement on its '889 design patent. The only problem is the jury awarded these damages without actually finding that the devices were infringing on the patents in question.
