It’s a Heyday for Apple; Gets Awarded $1B in the Case Against Samsung

Ok. So it is decided. Apple triumph in the landmark patent dispute. The nine person jury agreed with Apple’s claims that Samsung has infringed Apple’s patent and copied the design of Apple products, wake to beat the popular iPad and iPhone. The jury decided against Samsung claims that Apple infringed Samsung’s patent.
