Samsung ordered to pay Apple over $1 billion after USA patent battle

A court in the USA has ruled that Samsung has infringed a number of Apple patents for design and user interface, ordering the South Korean company to pay $1.05 billion (£664 million) in damages. However, the court decided that Apple’s iPad design had not been infringed.

The long-running court case rejected Samsung’s claims that a number of its patents had been used without permission by Apple.

Apple is now in a position to request import bans on the offending Samsung products, while Samsung says it will appeal.

A follow-up hearing is scheduled for 20th September. This will involve the judge confirming or overruling the jury’s decision and potentially agreeing an injunction.
