Apple vs. Samsung: Apple receives $290 million in damages


Another jury has found that Samsung did indeed violate various patents, according to reporters who were on scene at the courtroom when the verdict was reached.

The verdict isn’t particularly surprising, as most of the evidence was exactly the same as that presented last year, where the jury again sided with Apple and found Samsung guilty of patent infringement. The difference is that this jury only demanded $290 million from Samsung, which was less than Apple recommended, but also far more than Samsung advised they owed.

This brings the total damages that Samsung owes to Apple up to $890 million. As always, the legal process is both complex and long, so things may well change. However, it seems that many juries are finding in favor of Apple over Samsung.
