Sorry Samsung fans, Apple has finally come out on top in their long standing patent battle involving the "slide to unlock" gesture.
This is just one of many lawsuits that Samsung and Apple are fighting in lower courts across the United States - the prominent one being the iPhone design patent infringement.
Another day, another story pertaining to the ongoing patent disputes between technology giants Apple and Samsung.
Following weeks of testimony and three days of deliberations, the eight-member jury reached a decision awarding Apple $119,625,000 on three infringed patents and Samsung $158,400 on one patent. The case also involved patents on features such as turning data into links - like tapping a phone number to dial it. We're guessing that every court decision made in the future, as evidenced by history, will be appealed, so don't expect Apple vs. Samsung to settle down anytime soon.
In 2014, a California court ordered Samsung to pay almost $120 million in damages for violating two of Apple's patents, including the iPhone's well-known slide-to-unlock feature.
Vehicle sales decline deepens as diesel models plummet
Year to date the market is down 4.6%. "This is being compounded by confusion over Government policy on diesel", he said. This means that the overall market is down 4.6% this year so far on 2016 levels, with more than 2.2m cars registered.
But here's the amusing part: all the original phones involved in the battle have already been phased out of protection.
Samsung also believes that Apple will "unjustly profit" from an invalid patent thanks to this "unfair" ruling. In fact, the case is so old, Apple doesn't even use the "slide to unlock" functionality on its iPhones anymore.
Apple and Samsung's history extends outside of the courts, too.
While a lower court too had ruled in favour of Apple back in 2014, Samsung filed several appeals against the ruling. That figure was later reduced to $548 million after an appeal, and last month the Supreme Court set aside $399 million more of the judgment after another appeal from Samsung. As it turns out, it was a futile attempt by Samsung and now, has no option to pay to Apple. It's done better here than in its other patent battle concerning the design of the iPhone.
