Here is Apple CEO Tim Cook’s Email Reaction to Employees Over Verdict Win

After learning the jury outcome of their trial against Samsung, Apple CEO, Tim Cook, sent the following email to all employees (via 9to5Mac):

Today was an important day for Apple and for innovators everywhere.

Many of you have been closely following the trial against Samsung in San Jose for the past few weeks. We chose legal action very reluctantly and only after repeatedly asking Samsung to stop copying our work. For us this lawsuit has always been about something much more important than patents or money. It’s about values. We value originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best products on earth. And we do this to delight our customers, not for competitors to flagrantly copy.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the jury who invested their time in listening to our story. We were thrilled to finally have the opportunity to tell it. The mountain of evidence presented during the trial showed that Samsung’s copying went far deeper than we knew.

The jury has now spoken. We applaud them for finding Samsung’s behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn’t right.

I am very proud of the work that each of you do.

Today, values have won and I hope the whole world listens.

Tim

Cook made it clear Apple had repeatedly asked Samsung to stop shamelessly ripping off their designs and ideas. Clearly, Samsung failed to get the memo and will be paying a hefty price for their actions.

    Everyone knows this is far far from over.

    In Canadian terms, it’s like planning the Stanley Cup parade route when you make it into the playoffs at the end of the season.
