(Reuters) - Apple Inc scored a sweeping legal victory over Samsung on Friday as a U.S. jury found the Korean company had copied critical features of the hugely popular iPhone and iPad and awarded the U.S. company $1.05 billion in damages.
Earlier on Friday, a South Korean court found that both companies shared blame for patent infringement, ordering Samsung to stop selling 10 products including its Galaxy S II phone and banning Apple from selling four different products, including its iPhone 4.
Good Job Apple, good to know consumers will likely be getting the short end of it.
I'm just waiting for the news to break where American consumers will only ever be allowed to buy Apple products. God forbid Apple had to actually make a competitive product with a descent Operating System.
