Two jury verdicts still don’t equal resolution in Apple v. Samsung battle

“A second jury has decided that Samsung owes Apple hundreds of millions of dollars for infringing on patents,” Ina Fried writes for AllThingsD. “But while the verdict in this case is in and the jury’s work done, the battle between Apple and Samsung is far from over.”

“In just this case there will be post-trial motions to throw out the verdict as well as pleas for injunctions, attorney’s fees and sanctions,” Fried writes. “Oh, and of course both sides will no doubt appeal as well”

“And this dispute is itself just one of many being waged by the two companies in multiple venues on several continents,” Fried writes. “Indeed, Apple and Samsung are due back in the same courtroom early next year for an entirely new trial over a later generation of Samsung phones and tablets.”

    1. Exactly who ever admits to wrongdoings. It’s been said the criminal institutions are filled with innocent inmates. Besides, after killing somebody, saying you’re sorry isn’t much in the way of compensation. Even if Samsung paid Apple a billion dollars, Samsung probably made ten times that amount and cost Apple hundreds of billions of dollars in market cap. Apple has been devalued considerably and Samsung practically carried Android to the stars.

    1. Bad reporting from Ina. This is merely a plea to “quit fighting.” It’s not about the money, Ina. It’s about protecting the concept of IP. When IP is not protected there is little incentive to spend billions on R&D. If every company sat back waiting for someone else to invest so they could simply copy, it wouldn’t take long for R&D investment to halt. It galls me that this obvious chain is lost on so many.
