Apple awarded $539m in US patent case against Samsung
A US court has ordered South Korea's Samsung Electronics pay $539m in damages for copying features of Apple's original iPhone. A year later Apple was awarded $1.05bn in damages but the pair have fought over the final amount Samsung should pay. Most of the damages payment - $533.3m - was awarded for infringing three Apple design patents. In a statement, Apple said it was pleased that the members of the jury "Agree that Samsung should pay for copying our products." Samsung said the decision "Flies in the face" of the unanimous Supreme Court ruling in its favour on the way the design patent damages are calculated.
