Samsung ordered to pay Apple $539M for patent infringement

Samsung went on to say that the verdict wasn't in keeping with the evidence and that Apple is only in it for the money.

The revised damages figure represents a victory for Apple, even though it is not as much as the Cupertino, California, company had sought.

Apple was originally awarded $1.05 billion in damages from Samsung back in 2012.

An eight-person jury came up with the new amount following a one-week trial and four days of deliberation in a San Jose, California, federal courthouse.

Firstly Samsung will be hacked off that this trial had reconsidered $399 million of Samsung's earlier payments, so $539 million is a significantly more considerable sum. Today's victory for Apple is the third-largest to be awarded by a jury in the USA in 2018 and will go some way to recouping the $502.6 million (£375.9 million) in damages that Apple was ordered to pay out to VirnetX in a case earlier this year.

The verdict in this final case is in and Samsung has lost.

"Today's decision flies in the face of a unanimous Supreme Court ruling in favor of Samsung on the scope of design patent damages", Samsung said.

Samsung previously paid Apple $399 million to compensate Apple for infringement of some of the patents at issue in the case. However, Apple demanded damages to the tune of $1 billion, while Samsung claimed it only owed about $28 million. The bulk of the new damages award, $533.3 million, was for infringing three. They decided on a payout based on damages.

Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. began in April 2011 with Apple's allegation that certain Samsung smartphones infringed on iPhone inventions including patents and trademarks. In January 2018, Apple looked to reverse a decision by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board that upheld the validity of the VoIP-Pal patents.

Samsung attorney John Quinn held up components to the jury, emphasising that each was its own article of manufacture, and that there are "hundreds of articles of manufacture inside a phone". The infringement of two other utility patents cost Samsung another $5.3 million.

Apple, who had already engaged in clashes with Nokia and HTC in 2009 and 2010, seemed initially hesitant to start a war with Samsung.

An appeal court determined Apple could not legally lay claim to the iPhone's appearance.
