It will be.

Me thinks it will be slightly biased since its in America.

Oh dear:-

Details are still being read out, but several of Samsung's devices have been found to have infringed Apple's software and design patents.

I found the 22 page doc very interesting that the jury had to fill in during the week.

I also was shocked at the hollywood nonsense the lawyers were spouting at the closing statements the other day.

Yep. Look like they've been screwed over in the USA but come out tops in south Korea. Odd, eh

Wonder how many months of appeals we will see ?

The main problem is putting clueless general public on the jury in the first place. They took 21 hours to consider a few weeks testimony!

Yeah, i think it will go to appeal and apple will lose several of them.

Meanwhile, it seems Samsung have been found guilty on several counts. Jury leaves court wth new ipads, iphones and a few $$ in their back pockets

Damages from Samsung to Apple, zero. Wow.

Samsung should have settled this out of court.

Well apple wanted 2.5bn (cos they need it ?) And got just over 1 ....

The result does seem very quick and very one sided.

I wonder if this will cause Google/Motorola to roll out some of the big gun patents ?

Samsung knew this was coming, looking at the internal
documents over the trial they were hell bent in 'copying' the iPhone. They have learned there lesson with their new products SIII and TouchWiz has changed. But Apple are restricting the market, no question.

More importantly were does this leave Google with Android? Apple are taking them to court and it will probably have the same result.

I still find the whole thing hilarious though and think Apple have shot themselves in the foot. They may get some money but, in the long run they have shown they are a bunch of absolute tossers and it will put people off buying them.

They need to have a judge with some balls to come in and throw the whole lot out telling them all to bloody grow up.

Apple deserve to win for the Android case. It's a direct rip off of IOS.

Judge Koh in this trial was like that! She was pissed off throughout and wanted this settled as soon as possible. She didn't take any crap from the attorneys from both sides.

Thats why i jumped shipped from using iPhone to Samsung - realised Apple are just bullies and I do not support companies that show this behaviour in public. Apple are damaging their reputation and it's their own fault at the end of the day.

This judgement wont stop people buying Apple products.

Saint Steve Jobs wanted to destroy Android. His minions are carrying out out his final wishes.

I think they will put people off buying any more from them, if they were stuck in the middle.

This whole case is a joke because Samsung already had designs announced before the original iphone came out. Then there is the whole patents being obvious thing that shouldn't have even been registered.

There are so many things wrong with phone patents in the world atm.

Yes the patent law need cleared up but until then Apple can throw enough money at this as they like.

I'm not a advocate for Apple at all but did any off you (who say Apple is the 'bad guy') see Samsung's documents when the iPhone was released, they changed the design, icons, buttons on the original S to compete with the iPhone.

It was blatant copying. Breaking down each and every part of iOS to make it look the same in TouchWiz.
