From CNN and ABC:
(CNN) — A federal jury in California on Friday recommended that Apple be awarded more than $1 billion in damages after finding Samsung was guilty of “willful” violations of a number of Apple’s patents in the creation of its own mobile products.
(ABC) — Apple has scored a sweeping legal victory over Samsung as a US jury found the Korean company had copied critical features of the hugely popular iPhone and iPad and awarded the US company $1.051 billion in damages.
Finally, the legal battle seems to be over. I do not favor Apple much in this case, although I said earlier that a clone and direct copy should be avoided. But many later cases of the Samsung devices do not copy that much, so it would not be so fair that Samsung still has to pay for that fine. Apple has released so many secrets that would come and harm them later.
This legal victory will certainly scare other android device owners like HTC…
