Copy-Copy: Samsung Loses Another Patent Battle To Apple, Fined $119.6million

share on:

Samsung has been ordered to pay a sum of $119.6milion after a US court found it guilty of infringing on patents belonging to Apple.

Apple accused Samsung of violating patents on smartphone features including universal search, which Samsung had denied.

The current case involves five Apple patents that were not in the 2012 trial and that cover iPhone features such as slide-to-unlock and search technology. Apple is seeking to ban sales of several Samsung phones, including the Galaxy S III, and sought just over $2bn in damages.

It will now be up to Judge Koh to decide whether a sales ban is warranted, though legal experts deem that unlikely.
