Apple v. Samsung Jury Verdict Form
Sources: RE/Code, WSJ, Apple Insider
quote: The jury ruled that Apple indeed infringed on the '239 patent across its devices , but did not infringe on the '449 patent.This is a major win for Samsung as it now has an infringement finding that it can use to ban a wide variety of Apple products potentially, should Apple refuse to approach it with a reasonable licensing offer.Such an approach would not be possible with standards patents on cellular technologies, which Samsung had focused on in its claims against Apple in the previous case. But Samsung appeared to have learned its lesson; it agreed in March to drop two of its asserted patents -- U.S. Patent No. 7,756,087 and U.S. Patent No. 7,551,596 -- which were deemed essential as part of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) in 2006 and 2010, respectively.Like Apple its asserted patents in this case appear to not be encumbered by so-called "fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory" (FRAND) licensing terms and hence can be used to pursue product bans.

quote: I'm sure the fact that Samsung is Apple's biggest competitor, and has propelled Google's Android into the stratosphere, is just a coincidence...
