All this is really doing is setting up who the plaintiff will be in the appeal.

Looks like a Samsung beat-down regarding infringement. Interesting to see what the damages will be. The jury came back so fast, it's got to be high.

Samsung and Apple must be doing lines in the Judge's chambers. Probably why its taking so long.

On the first claim, regarding the '301 "bounce back" patent, the jury finds Samsung guilty on all counts. Samsung infringed on Apple's patent on a wide variety of products.

On Apple's "pinch and zoom" '915 patent, the jury found that Samsung infringed on all but three products.

For the "double-tap to zoom" '163 patent, the jury found that Samsung infringed on a wide number of products, but not all.

Phew, thank God for that. I was worried Apple might go under. They could sure use that $1B.

Yes, I understand this about IP protection, not cash before all the Apple zealots put me in the stocks.

Oh yeah, Samsung is stinging, but it could have been way worse. A billion is a lot of money but I would think that those devices generated more than $1B in profit over the years so even with the pain and write down, it isn't the end of the world.

Where it would be painful is an injunction against the import and sale of all these devices including those already in stores. Those products have to be quickly replaced with non-infringing products or lose the market placement of the brand. I quickly looked over that list and it seems that not all devices, while similar, are not infringing.

Who should be nervous is Google. This may mean Apple starts going after other handset makers.

Ha.. Jury awarded Apple money for products they found to be non-infridging. Oops!

I wouldn't discount Sammy. These companies always have contingency plans. All of these products are probably already well into redesign just in case they lost as they did.

I read a commentary I think in the WSJ about whether or not a win would really be a win for Apple in that it could force competitors to really spend on R&D. The gist was Sammy or another handset maker could come out with something revolutionary, not just evolutionary. Until now, evolutionary is paying the bills but now that can't happen.

You make me laugh. Every company that was seemingly invincible and on top has fallen at some time. It's how business works. Even through apple colored glasses, that should be an easy one to see.
