Samsung to pay a fraction of Apple's demand
The same jurors also endorsed counterclaims by Samsung and ordered Apple to pay $158,400 to its rival in damages over one Samsung patent. Apple said in a statement that Samsung "willfully" stole ideas and copied products, including the slide-to-unlock patent and search technology.
"We are fighting to defend the hard work that goes into beloved products like the iPhone, which our employees devote their lives to designing and delivering for our customers," the company said.
Apple and Samsung, the world's top two smartphone producers, have been embroiled in what's been described as a "patent war of the century" in more than 10 countries across the globe. ■
