Jury finds Samsung violated Apple patents

After three days of deliberation a federal court jury has found that Samsung has infringed on six of Apple’s patents and awarded Apple one $1 billion Samsung must pay in damages.

Apple had asked the Jury to award it $2.5 billion in damages, claiming Samsung violated patents related to the physical and software design of the iPhone and iPad. Samsung countersued, demanding Apple pay it $422 million for its own patent violation.

The Jury found that Samsung infringed on six out of seven of Apple’s patents, with Apple’s iPad design being the exception. The Jury found that Apple did not infringe on Samsung’s patents.
