    Suffice to say, Samsung's legal team cannot be happy right now.

    Looks like this thread needs to be merged with 'What's America's Problem?'...

    Interesting that the Korean court came out with a sensible judgement of you're both wrong and the American one came out with pay Apple loads of money.

    Meh who cares once you own a smartphone and/or tablet then you own a smartphone and/or tablet. They are more functional rather than a necessity. Check email, calendar, & skype. Whoop dee doo.

    ah yes, because the status quo as we have known it for nigh these last 4/5 years is as it was and always will always be

    Jacobs points out that Apple has a finding of willful infringement on its side, urging her to move things along quickly so Apple can deal with the "irreparable harm" Samsung's products on the market are causing.
    September 20th is the next hearing, could see Samsung Phone and Tablet products pulled from shelves for causing 'irreparable harm' to Apple.

    Why am I not surprised that in an American courtroom, Apple are 'paid out' a shy over a billion whereas Samsung walks away with nothing...?

    I love some of the things Apple have made, especially their iPod range and the iPad however, the company themselves, are verging on thinking they can play God.

    Thank god mowgli is here to provide impartial analysis of a story involving Apple.

    Nothing is going to change for a while yet. This will be appealed and fight will continue on in many other courts. Meanwhile we'll all foot the bill, yay!

    Do something else? I get what you are trying to suggest with the sarcasm, but forget the fact that it is Apple for a second, how hard is it to just think of something else? There seems to be an assumption in the backlash to these cases that innovation only comes with taking another's idea and not adding something/changing something.

    There is a lot to get frustrated about with the current patent system, but at its very core it is about securing an invention to the point of allowing others to do something different, build upon it to a distinct degree. Not just outright copy it in every sense like Samsung (and others including Apple) have shamelessly been guilty of on several occasions.

    That's why a majority of companies choose to use FRAND licensing. Apple does not.

    If you don't think that human progress is all about taking something which exists, then building on it a bit then... well... you're wrong. Patents are a good thing, but in the current state (particularly with software patents) they are an awful blight on the industry which will kill innovation.

    And yes, you can take the other side of the coin with that argument and say that people should be able to make money off of every tiny idea they come up with. But that just makes you a short-termist idiot, in my eyes.

    And yes, this goes for Apple, Samsung, Motorola, Namco (yep, still bitter I can't play a mini-game during a loading screen), Sony etc etc.

    I'd say the gamble has paid off rather handsomely for Samsung. The company is now one of the major forces in smartphone devices with the division making revenues of $108bn. And that's just cost it $1bn to Apple. Bargain, compared say to buying Skype or Instagram by other companies.

    Give what a rest? This is probably the first time I've mentioned your religion all year. I'm sorry if my snarky comment suggested you hadn't been following this case for a while, I'm sure you've been following it closely. No I'm not impartial, nobody is completely impartial and yes I have an Android phone and I don't much like using iTunes so I must be a raving fanboy.

    I never said otherwise, no one is, the point of the case was that Samsung never took that second step. The one step fundamental to the entire patent system. They (Samsung, in this case) just took another's idea... and that was that. It's incredibly that so many are wilfully ignoring that.
