Round two: Apple and Samsung suit up for another billon dollar patent war

They had just reached a verdict on what was dubbed by some as “the patent trial of the century,” a fight between Apple and Samsung that was ultimately over the idea of originality. After a three week-long trial that included more than 50 hours of testimony and arguments from both sides, Apple handily beat Samsung, convincing the jurors that Samsung not only copied its technology, but also made billions in the process. Apple was awarded just over $1 billion in damages, though that figure was later cut down to $939.8 million after the judge pointed out errors in the way the jury did its math. Those damages were retried, and came in lower than the original figure, though the entire amount has since been appealed, and Samsung hasn’t paid a penny.
