I can hear Dangonay yell "f*ck yeah" across the city.. LOL

Samsung will appeal, and then one of them will appeal again in trying to get the case heard @ the surpreme court level. Having read some of the evidence posted by Apple, some of it makes you go "WTF was Samsung thinking?"

^It's based on royalties really ( # of patent violations * # of incidents (# of phones sold) * $approximate loss to Apple per violation ).. I'm more surprised that "some" (I agree with some, not all) of the 'patents' held up to the test

Not surprising, considering how the other trials around the world have unfolded.

Everyone expected samsung to lose, the case is right in Apples territory (city), people involved are ex-silicon valley people.
but $1 billion in damages is quite high.

I'm not a fan of samsung or apple.

As a consumer, this is bad for competition and getting the prices lowered down.

it was expected though

it shouldn't have been left up to a Jury since Americans think that Apple invented everything

should leave it up to the icc to decide



look at this

Quote:
Judge Lucy Koh said Friday that there were inconsistencies in the jury verdict that found Samsung infringed several Apple patents and awarded more than $1 billion in damages.

There are at least two problems with the verdict, Koh said. For the Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE, the jury found no infringement or inducement but awarded damages. On another count, the jury found no infringement of Apple’s utility patents but found inducement of infringement, a combination not possible according to Koh’s jury instructions.

...

Update, 5:30 pm PT: The jury has sent a note seeking clarification of just what the inconsistencies were with the verdict. Koh is now drafting an answer, with guidance from the lawyers. Looks like it is going to be a late night.
