As many of you know, Apple has been attacking Samsung both inside and outside of court. The first trial ended with an infamous $1 billion verdict against Samsung. That was a bit of a letdown for Samsung, but Apple continued with a victory in its pocked and the second part saw Apple demanding about $40 per phone. How much is that $40 exactly? Over 2 billion dollars! Samsung on the other hand was asking for a mere $6 million for its patents. The part 2 of the trial has now seen its end with both parties seeing wins and losses. Both parties were ordered to pay damages to each other, though Apple has the edge here with $119.6 million compared to Samsung's $158.4K. As you can see, Apple won the court trial and was given quite a few million. Still, the trial is a win for Samsung too, since it didn't have to pay $40 for a few patents Apple claimed were essential for Samsung's Android UI. Source via Ars Technica Thoughts? It's interesting to see how the trial will change the dynamics of the two companies. Here's one hoping for more mobile patents made into standard essential. Another option would be to modify the possibilities of software patents.
