It feels like so long ago now, but Apple claimed that Samsung had violated multiple of its patents, claiming that the South Korean giant owed it $2 billion in damages. The lawsuit is now over, with the jury finding:
- Samsung is guilty of violating patent 5,946,647 (the autocorrect text entry patent) with all devices named in this suit.
- Samsung was found not guilty of violating the 6.847.959 patent (Apple's Spotlight search).
- Samsung was found not guilty of violating the 7,761,414 patent (data synchronization patent).
- Samsung was found guilty of violating the 8,046,721 patent (slide-to-unlock) on some devices named, but not all.
The jury ruled that Samsung is to pay Apple $119.6 million in damages, with Apple found to be violating one of two of Samsung's counterclaims, fining the iPhone giant a whopping $158,400.
