Patent dispute: Samsung billion penalty needs to be renegotiated

Slowly but surely the victory falls from Apple in patent dispute against Samsung continues to collapse. Could only be achieved no resale restrictions, are now a large part of the billions of punishment must also be re-negotiated
Patent dispute: Samsung billion penalty needs to be renegotiated

$ 1.05 billion times should originally from South Korea towards Cupertino be remitted after the jury in the “mother of all patent battles” for Samsung were guilty of having violated various Apple patents intentionally. Now Judge Koh ordered the review of a large part of the punishment!

This involves a total $ 450.5 million, which must be renegotiated, since, according to Koh, the jurors have the penalties for a total of 14 Samsung products not legally calculated correctly.

What is now only once after a confirmation for many critics of sounds that are already wondered immediately after the sentencing by the extremely short consultation period of the jurors, the number could also soon make even more expensive for the South Koreans.

Apple has in the past few months never made a sales ban for even durchzudruecken only one Samsung product, but now offers the chance that the penalties for a total of 14 Samsung products must be re-evaluated and negotiated. The pendulum can thus deflect in both directions and the great unknown “jury-court” is also hardly predictable.

The “Never Ending Story” is so in the next round and is slowly but surely on a matter that has already been overtaken by history and market development. The biggest part of the process treated products will not be sold in months. They are just too old!

PS Surprised I read today’s article by the great German publications that speak of the punishment that was cut by more than half. world , SpOn , Handelsblatt and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung . report such as this would be a decision already taken. This is not so!
