Jury Rules Samsung Must Pay Apple $290 Million in Damages Retrial




The jury has reached a verdict in the damages retrial between Samsung and Apple that began last week. The trial was to determine the amount of money Samsung must pay for copying key iPhone features and design elements after Samsung was found guilty in a jury trial last year.

The jury found Samsung liable for $290 million in damages, according to IDG News reporter Martyn Williams. During its opening statements, Apple asked for $379 million in damages, while Samsung said it only owed $52 million.

Last year, Samsung was ordered to pay Apple a total of $1.05 billion after a jury found the South Korean company guilty of willfully violating multiple Apple patents. Back in March, Judge Lucy Koh struck $450 million from the $1 billion awarded to Samsung after deciding the jury may have miscalculated the damages due to a misunderstanding of patent issues.

The remaining approximately $600 million in damages was left intact by Judge Koh, and Samsung will have to pay a total of $890 million.

During the retrial, Apple brought Phil Schiller, senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing to the stand where he explained how Apple's marketing strategy worked and how Samsung's infringement caused consumers to "question our design skills in a way they never used to."

Update: Apple issued this statement to AllThingsD following the verdict:
Quote:
"For Apple, this case has always been about more than patents and money," Apple said in a statement to AllThingsD. "It has been about innovation and the hard work that goes into inventing products that people love. While it's impossible to put a price tag on those values, we are grateful to the jury for showing Samsung that copying has a cost."

In the always-silly words of Samsung, is that racist?

Oh good - more "Samsung paid Apple $XXX in nickels" articles......

For those who you who believe those, go back to grade school math class.

Can we just be done with all these trials and retrials? Everyone sues everyone, in my mind, stuff that happens regularly isn't really all that newsworthy.

They won't change. Shamsung will continue to make profits from ill-gotten gains and pay the fines and still make money.

Wonder if this will come in dimes?

Got me thinking about a pretty hilarious move by Apple if they made a spot for a 5cent piece in every new iDevice box. These coins, although there'd be a lot of them would become collectors items... Or maybe stamp the coins into the back of the iWatch (that I hope if it does come, looks like a nice watch, not a sporty device).

Just being dumb...

Samsung probably budgeted for Apple lawsuits in their Cost-Benefit analysis. They found a working formula and will continue to exploit it for short-term gains. Shamelessly.

The amount seems really tame now considering how Samsung have capitalised on their infringement so far.

On to the next trial I guess....

Too bad we didn't hear from Scott. But 890m should be fine for Samsung, considering they spend 4000m in marketing, thats about right amount.

Needs to be WAY more than that considering Samsung got where they are basically by ripping off everything from Apple.

Make it BILLION and then we'll talk.

Just have to do the appeals for this case.
Then the next trial (SGS3 and Note).
Then some more trials for the SGS4,Note 2 and Note 3.
Then the trial for the phones released during that trial.

It would if anything solve the chipset and display shortages... and I would have had my iPad mini on launch day.

Not sure how much Samsung is ripping off since my Note 3 has a TON more features than the iPhone will ever have.
