Apple Vs Samsung

Poll: What do you think about the Apple vs. Samsung verdict?

What do you think about the Apple vs. Samsung verdict?

That's it. We're done. Apple vs. Samsung has been exhausting and now that the jury has had it's say, awarding Apple some $1.05 billion in damages, it's time for you to have yours. We're leaving the comments wide open, handing you the mic, and slowly backing away from the internet for the night.

Did the jury reach the right decision? Did they get it totally wrong? Does copying kill innovation? Does litigation and a patent system gone haywire? Should Samsung have won on some counts as well? Should Apple have lost on their counts too? Or could you really care less at this point?

Vote in the poll up top and let loose in the comments below. Ducks and runs

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.

Conan pokes fun at Samsung copying Apple

The Apple vs Samsung trial is apparently mainstream enough now that even Team Coco's own Conan O'Brien is lampooning it on his late night talk show -- or at least lampooning Samsung's attempts to claim they're not a copyist.
