Jury rules Samsung infringed on Apple patents–media
SAN FRANCISCO – A jury ruled Friday after a bitter trial that Samsung infringed on Apple patents for smartphones and tablets, media reported — a verdict that could have huge market repercussions.
The jury in San Jose, California, which had examined some 700 infringement claims by Apple and Samsung, ruled that the South Korean electronics giant infringed on a number of patents, said the technology websites Cnet and The Verge in live courtroom blogs.
Apple, which accused the South Korean electronics giant of copying the iPhone and iPad too closely, is seeking damages of up to $2.75 billion and an injunction that could knock some Samsung products off the US market.
The jury was reading from a list of claims, and the decision on Samsung’s counterclaims of infringement on wireless patents by Apple was not immediately clear.
The verdict affects patents on a range of Samsung products including some of its popular Galaxy smartphones and its Galaxy 10 tablet, devices alleged to have been copied from the iPhone and iPad.
