Samsung should still pay 119.6 million dollars for infringing Apple patents




American judges on Friday appealed decided that Samsung is still an amount of $ 119.6 million, converted about 107 million euros, to pay to Apple. A lower court had decided in February that had run down the penalty for patent infringement.

The appeal judges were of the view that Friday destroying ought not to take place penalty, writes Reuters. There would be sufficient evidence to establish infringement of patents for techniques like contextual link menus to phone numbers and addresses, slide-to-unlock and autocomplete. The lower court could have used evidence that was outside the scope of the case.

The beginning of the dispute goes back to 2014, when the lower court had the fine imposed on Samsung. The case which had led to the statement filed by Apple, because it considered that the South Korean company had violated five of its patents. The judge ruled that this was indeed the case for three patents. Two years later the fine was again destroyed , because there would be no patent infringement.

The judge came out at that time by making this decision which had invalidated two of the three patents. The third patent was valid, but there would not be infringed by Samsung.
