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.

Apple coughs up $2.6m to block Samsung tablet sales

Apple has opened its purse and swiftly paid the $2.6m bond required to block sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the US, after a court granted a preliminary injunction against the Android slate. The bond - a drop in the ocean given Apple's current financial status - will be subject to forfeit to Samsung should the injunction be subsequently deemed improper. However, Samsung has requested that the block on sales be held off until its appeal can be heard.
