From now on lawyers will design cellphones, not engineers
After a surprisingly short time in deliberations, the jury in the Apple v. Samsung case reached a verdict today. The nine jurors decided unanimously that Samsung had infringed on Apple’s intellectual property, and while Cupertino won’t be getting the more than $2.5 billion it asked for, it will be getting at least $1,049,343,540.
This is a big win for Apple and a huge message that is being sent to the Android echo system in general. But the battle between Samsung and Apple is far from over, an appeal will surely take place. Things could get better or worse for Samsung.
