Samsung Takes Apple Patent Battle To US Supreme Court

I guess we know what Samsung meant earlier this month when the company said it reserved all rights to reclaim or obtain reimbursement from Apple (here). The ongoing battle between these two is now headed to the Supreme Court.

If the Supreme Court decides to take the case, its eventual decision could have a ripple effect on the technology industry and the kinds of gadgets you'll be able to buy. Samsung and some of Silicon Valley's biggest players, including Google and Facebook, have argued that the lower-court ruling as it stands may have a "devastating impact" on the introduction of new products because of a heightened fear of legal challenges. Apple said all along that it was doing what was necessary to defend its intellectual property and the value of its blockbuster iPhone franchise.
