Jury finds Samsung violated Apple patents

— 6:55 PM on August 24, 2012

The jury in Apple's patent infringement case against Samsung has found that Samsung violated a great many of the patents Apple sought to enforce, and it has awarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages, according to widespread reports, including this one. Meanwhile, Samsung's countersuit fizzled.

The questions now are many, including what happens at the next stage of what will surely be a protacted appeals process, what the implications are for other makers of Android phones, and whether Apple will pursue and obtain injunctions preventing the sale of more infringing—or potentially infringing—products.
