Samsung releases internal memo in reaction to “worst scenario” verdict in U.S. trial

by: Chris SmithAugust 27, 2012

Samsung has been dealt a major defeat in the U.S., where the jury in the Apple vs Samsung case found the South Korean company to infringe on several software and design patents and awarded Apple just a little over $1 billion in damages.

According to a report from The Korea Times, the verdict was unexpected by Samsung officials, who saw it as “absolutely the worst scenario” for the company:

Samsung executives were still reeling in shock Sunday, but provided no clear hint on the company’s next move in the showdown with its industry archrival. It’s widely expected that Samsung will appeal, but the outlook for success in the [...]

Apple vs Samsung verdict: members of the jury share details about $1 billion ruling

by: Chris SmithAugust 27, 2012

Late on Friday the jury in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial revealed its findings in the case, and awarded a huge win to Apple, with the iPhone maker winning on almost on counts. Consequently, the jury said Samsung owes Apple just over $1 billion in damages.

We’ve already seen reactions from both Apple and Samsung, but also from Google, and we’ve seen the immediate effects the verdict had on both companies’ traded stock. We’re probably going to see both companies file various motions and try to overturn certain areas of the verdict in the day to come – yes, even Apple will file such motions as the jury found that the Galaxy Tab tablets don’t [...]

7.5% share slump wipes $12 billion off Samsung’s market value

by: Gary SimsAugust 27, 2012

The markets have reacted swiftly to the landmark judgement granted to Apple against Samsung. In heavy trading (around four times the daily average) Samsung’s shares plummeted by 7.5 percent taking more than $12 billion off the electronic giant’s market value. The market is clearly worried that the $1.05 billion in damages ordered by the Californian jury and the prospect of a complete ban of Samsung’s key mobile products will do irreparable damage to the company.

“There are still too many variables including the final ruling to come at least a month from the recent verdict, and whether there will be a sales ban on [...]

This is how the next Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets will look like

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 27, 2012
In view of the recent court verdict rendering Samsung guilty of infringing on Apple's design patents, observers and industry pundits have predicted what Samsung's next batch of tablets and smartphones will look like. Since Samsung has already accused Apple of monopolizing "rectangles with rounded corners," the company is likely to take a radical approach to design.

Apple vs Samsung verdict: Android devices to ban after Apple $1 billion win in U.S. court

by: Chris SmithAugust 25, 2012

Earlier today we told you that Apple has obtained a huge victory in its U.S. case against Samsung, with the latter being delivered a devastating defeat – not because of the $1 billion in damages awarded to Apple, which can be considered pocket change by Samsung compared to its profits from the mobile business, but because what the victory means for Apple, the whole mobile ecosystem, and, most importantly, consumers.

Sure, Samsung may fight the verdict in further appeals, but Apple will also do some appealing of its own, and try to obtain various injunctions in the U.S. against the Samsung products found to be infringing at least one of [...]

Huge Samsung defeat – what caused Apple’s $1 billion win in U.S. patent case [full verdict]

by: Chris SmithAugust 25, 2012

You probably know by now that Samsung has just gotten its ass kicked by Apple in court in San Jose, California, in one of the most important patent legal conflicts of our times, and in one of the most important patent fights between the two, with Apple in a war that spans across four continents, with more than 50 cases filed in 10 countries so far.

The unexpectedly fast verdict was filed on late-Friday, and it heavily contradicts the findings of a South Korean court in a similar case. That court said that both sides infringe on the other’s patents and awarded damages in the thousands for each party.

But the jury in this first U.S. [...]

Apple’s $1 billion patent win against Samsung: first thoughts

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 25, 2012
In light of the court's decision, and the points presented by both Apple and Samsung, what clearly comes to light is the role of patents in innovation, and the extent to which businesses can take liberties at existing intellectual property and work these to their own goals. We weigh in with our thoughts, with the focus of whether the verdict can result in better innovation for Android and the smartphone industry in the long run.

Samsung opens Apple-like store in Sydney, coincidentally almost next to an Apple retail store

by: Chris SmithAugust 24, 2012

Image Credit: SMH

It doesn’t really help your case against Apple – in which you argue that you don’t just copy/follow the iPhone maker’s lead in whatever it’s doing – if you’re going to open your own Samsung store that looks very much like an Apple store very close to an Apple store.

But that’s what happened in Sydney, where Samsung unveiled its own store in which consumers can walk in and interact with its smart devices, from Smart TVs to computers to tablets and smartphones, with the obvious emphasis on the last two kinds of products.

Then again, if you’re familiar with Steve Jobs and his obsession for opening Apple retail stores – [...]

South Korean court rules that Samsung did not copy the iPhone

by: Gary SimsAugust 24, 2012

Trying to keep track of who is suing who in the mobile industry is hard enough. But trying to keep track of which countries the suits are being filed in, is enough to make your head hurt. Currently Apple is in a legal battle with most of the major Android OEMs including HTC, Samsung and Motorola (aka Google). The biggest battle is with Samsung where injunctions have been filed in Australia and in Europe (specifically in Germany and the Netherlands) and where Apple has had some measure of success in blocking the sales of a variety of Samsung devices. On top of this, Apple and Samsung are battling it out in South Korea and of course in the [...]
