Slide-to-unlock patent battle: Apple wins $120 million from Samsung
08 November, 2017, 00:44 | Author: Pamela Mathis
One of Samsung and Apple's legendary patent fights has finally come to a close, with the US Supreme Court deciding in favor of the latter. Apple claimed that Samsung infringed on its patent by copying the feature in their Galaxy S lineup of smartphones.
Following weeks of testimony and three days of deliberations, the eight-member jury reached a decision awarding Apple $119,625,000 on three infringed patents and Samsung $158,400 on one patent.
The case centered around Apple's familiar slide-to-unlock patent as well as autocorrect and quick links, which turn information such as phone numbers into links.
Initially, the company had asked for a whopping $2.191 billion in damages for Samsung using the aforementioned patents and three negligible ones in 10 products.
The Supreme Court has now decided once and for all that it wouldn't hear Samsung's appeal and was sticking to the $120 million jury award. After that, Samsung had appealed to the Supreme Court, where it finally met its end in the ruling made today.
But here's the amusing part: all the original phones involved in the battle have already been phased out of protection. Then in 2016, the ruling was overturned - then reinstated again. That figure was later reduced to $548 million after an appeal, and last month the Supreme Court set aside $399 million more of the judgment after another appeal from Samsung. However the highest court in the land apparently did not want to do anything with this case and as of Monday officially declined to hear it. "One of Apple's patents at issue in this case has been invalidated by courts around the world, and yet today's decision allows Apple to unjustly profit from this patent, stunts innovation and places competition in the courtroom rather than the marketplace".
Notably, Samsung has manufactured the screens of Apple's iPhone X for its AMOLED display. It's done better here than in its other patent battle concerning the design of the iPhone.
