Apple VS Samsung: Samsung has violated Apple’s patents

Samsung has violated Apple’s patents and shall indemnify Apple¬† with $ 1.05 billion which is about half of what Apple had asked. The decision was made by the court in San Jose after three days of deliberation. The courts have made it clear that it was a decisive Google email. Velvin Hogan, head of the jury, said: “In 2010, I invited Koreans to change the design of their products which is too similar to Apple.” If the next month copying should be considered intentional, then the penalty could be tripled.

In a nutshell, Samsung has copied Apple’s patents for its smartphones. A blow to the Korean company who has already decided to appeal. In particular, Samsung has been found guilty of copying the “bounce” of the graphical interface that you get while navigating through the applications of the iPhone and iPad.

Cupertino has won all along the line even on the patent pinch which is the screen to zoom (pinch and zoom). With exceptions for some models of smartphones like the Galaxy Tablet which is not recognized as derived from the iPad. Samsung has filed an appeal against the judgment.

This judgement saves only the Nexus S 4G for Samsung which has nothing to do with the user interface and the design of the iPhone and the tablet Galaxy Tab which has nothing to do with the iPad of Apple. Samsung loses also the countersuit on some patents that Apple would copy (worth 421.8 million dollars). Apple is indeed acknowledged about the complaint alleging infringement of the antitrust rules.

Samsung has responded promptly to the decision: “The decision on Friday should not be seen as a victory for Apple: the American consumer is coming out defeated. All this will lead to less choice, less innovation and higher prices potentially.” Apple, in turn, welcomed the Justice and writes: “Stealing is not right”. As I said, Samsung has also announced the appeal against the judgment. While on the Stock Exchange in Seoul, titles have slipped by more than 7% whch is’s the heaviest fall since 2008.
