Samsung-Vs-Apple

And in order to compensate, the Jury has ordered that Samsung will have to pay $1.05 billion to Apple as compensation and will get none as the jury did not find any of Apple’s devices infringing on Sammy’s patent.


It is to be noted that Apple had initially demanded $2.5 billion in damages but the Jury has settled the claims a billion less. The patents in concern include the “bounce-back” feature which is used when a user scrolls to an end image, and the ability to zoom text with a tap of a finger. These patents have been said to be illegally used by Samsung in its products.
