Jury Finds Samsung Guilty of Infringing Apple Patents, Awards Apple $119.6 Million in Damages

The jury has reached a verdict in the Apple vs. Samsung case ruling that Samsung infringed on two of Apple's patents, awarding Apple $119.6 million in damages, reports Re/code.

The jury found all accused Samsung phones infringed on the first patent at issue, the ’647 quick links patent, but ruled various phones did not infringe on two others. For one other it ruled some Samsung products infringe, while others did not. Four a fifth patent, the judge had ruled that Samsung’s products infringe on the Apple patent and the jury determined that infringement was willful.

Apple had been asking for $2.2 billion in damages. The jury heard more than 50 hours of testimony and took three full days to reach a verdict.

“We are grateful to the jury and the court for their service,” Apple told Re/code. “Today’s ruling reinforces what courts around the world have already found: That Samsung willfully stole our ideas and copied our products. We are fighting to defend the hard work that goes into beloved products like the iPhone, which our employees devote their lives to designing and delivering for our customers.”
