A promoting knowledge for Apple declined to comment earlier referring CNNMoney to a press launch the company launched closing month following the jury award.

Many fashions moreover infringed on vogue or icon setup. Although “Apple won most of the battles,” Samsung found choice to “design around” the patents Apple claimed it copied, talked about Michael Risch, a patent licensed ideas professor at Villanova University.

“One lesson is consumers will drive tech more than patents. Samsung went where it thought consumers wanted … and Apple stayed with its distinctive smaller shape for a much longer period than Samsung,” Risch talked about. “Sometimes patent can drive innovation in ways we may not have expected.”
