Jury Orders Samsung to Pay Apple an Additional $4 Million in Damages

After concluding on late Friday Samsung was to pay Apple $119.6 million in damages for infringing on two patents, the jury Monday morning had ordered an additional $4 million to be paid out by the South Korean company, after a mix up on the verdict form was just clarified today, reports Re/code:

A federal jury in San Jose on Monday awarded Apple an additional $4 million in damages.

The move follow’s the jury’s earlier decision to award $119.6 million to Apple, as well as $158,400 to Samsung on its countersuit. The jury had been asked to reconsider one product and one patent for which they found infringement but did not award damages.

The deliberation took just over two hours today, reports Ina Fried.

The payout to Apple from Samsung is really peanuts in the overall picture, hardly the ‘thermonuclear’ war the late Steve Jobs had in mind, when he said he was ready to spend $40 billion of Apple’s cash “to right this wrong” after claims of Android being a stolen product.

    What kind of editor in chief are you? All you do is run around other blogs and get stories, copy and paste them on yours without checking to see if the information you are sharing with your little readers is accurate or not. Your hatred for Samsung and android has blinded you to the extent that, you’re willing to paste not write paste because you don’t know how to write any untrue information just to satisfy your yearning desire to stick
    it to Samsung at the expense of your readers. Well guess what mr. editor in chief, you and your little blog is not and will ever be important to Samsung and or Google.

    NO ONE CARES MR EDITOR IN CHIEF!!!

    So please if you want to copy and paste, please copy facts and paste them but, I would actually encourage you to do some writing, I’m guessing that’s what you went to school for
    right?
