Samsung must pay Apple for copying

A jury in Silicon Valley has ordered Samsung Electronics to pay Apple $290m (€215m) for copying vital iPhone and iPad features.

The verdict in San Jose, California, covers 13 older Samsung devices that a previous jury found were among 26 Samsung products which infringed Apple patents.

The previous jury awarded Apple $1.05bn but US District Judge Lucy Koh ordered the new trial and threw out $450m of the damages after concluding that the previous jury had miscalculated the amount Samsung owed.

Samsung appealed against that verdict and is also expected to appeal against the latest verdict.

A third trial is scheduled for March to consider Apple’s claims that Samsung’s newest devices on the market also copied Apple’s technology.
