Apple vs Samsung verdict: Jury finds predominantly for Apple, orders Samsung to pay over $1 billion in damages

The jury has reached a verdict in the U.S. Apple vs. Samsung trial and based on numerous reports, it looks like Apple has scored a significant victory. Both The Verge and CNET have been live-blogging the event, and in broad-strokes, it seems like none of Apple's patents were ruled invalid. Samsung was found to be infringing Apple's design and utility patents, and to have diluted Apple's trade dress. Apple was not found to be infringing any of Samsung's patents, and further found that Samsung was abusing standards-essential patents. Not all Samsung devices were found to infringe all Apple patents, but it sounds like a majority of them were.

Apple was ordered to pay Samsung absolutely no damages. Samsung was ordered to pay Apple $1.05 billion.

Say what you want about Apple vs. Samsung and what it reveals about the state of the U.S. patent system, but when it comes to revealing the history of Apple's iPhone and iPad design process, it's turning into the biggest historic win to date. Dozens of prototypes, which might have spent years, decades, or an eternity locked up in the vaults beneath Apple's design labs, have now been presented into evidence, showing us more clearly than ever how iOS devices evolved, which ideas Apple ran with, and which ones they shelved.
