Samsung got tagged with an infringement for the “bounce back” function which is what you see when you reach the edge of a photo. Apple was found guilty of infringements to patents relating to telecom standards held by Samsung.
The court awarded small damages to both companies. App was fined $17,650 per violation of a Samsung patent, while Samsung owes $22,000 for each of their violations. Both companies had aimed for about 90,000 in compensation from each other.
Here is where it gets even better. The court also put a limited ban on sales of specific devices in South Korea. Apple will have to pull the iPhone 4 and iPad 2. Samsung will have to pull the Galaxy S, Galaxy SII, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Tab and Galaxy 10.1. Seems like Samsung lost the battle, but when you consider the Apple has limited devices to offer and that they cost a lot more, no one ends up winning.
Personally, I think it is extremely funny. I wish this is how the whole case would have gone all over the world. Nail them both, let them both suffer and let Apple see how insane this whole thing is. Hard to push a claim against a company when you are violating patents too.
