Samsung will fight the $120m that must be paid to Apple

Samsung will fight the $120m a US court said it must be paid to Apple, the South Korean firm said, accusing Apple of omitting “real world evidence” that proved Samsung’s innocence.

Of course we’re pleased that the jury awarded Apple 6 percent of what they were asking for. But even that can’t stand, because Apple kept out all the real world evidence and didn’t produce anything to substitute for it, so you have a verdict that’s unsupported by evidence — and that’s just one of its problems.

Samsung was got $158,000 in damages over a patent Apple was deemed to have infringed upon.

No date has been set for the appeal as yet, and Apple is yet to respond to Samsung’s claims.
