Apple wins but Samsung is happy, latter told to pay to $119 million instead of $2 billion
Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung has come to an end with Samsung winning the judgment even though they were ordered to pay Apple $119,625,000 for patent infringements — but that’s a paltry sum compared to the $2 billion Apple was asking.
Samsung was said to have been found guilty of infringing on two of Apple’s patents — quick links feature that produces links for numbers and URLs in messages (patent 647) and the famous slide-to-unlock feature (patent 721).
There’s still a pending case to which involves the Samsung Galaxy S II which the court agreed to settle on Monday, but if found guilty, Samsung is not expected to pay a huge amount of money.
Apple wasn’t left unscathed in the case as they were also found guilty of infringing one of Samsung’s patents — a patent that has to do with organizing photos and videos in the gallery — and they were told to pay Samsung $158,400.
We have learnt a lot of things from the Apple vs. Samsung showdown and we are happy to see the case coming to an end.
