California, USA: The battle between two biggest smartphones selling company has came to an end after several month. A court in the USA has ruled that Samsung has infringed a number of Apple patents for design and user interface, ordering the South Korean company to pay $1.05 billion (£664 million) in damages.
According to a source “The court decided that Apple’s iPad design had not been infringed. The long-running court case rejected Samsung’s claims that a number of its patents had been used without permission by Apple.”
”Apple is now in a position to request import bans on the offending Samsung products, while Samsung says it will appeal.,” the source added.
A follow-up hearing is scheduled for 20th September which will involve the judge confirming or overruling the jury’s decision and potentially agreeing an injunction.
