Supreme Court Agrees To Hear Samsung-Apple Patent Case

Hopefully the Supreme Court puts an end to this case once and for all so that we never have to hear about it again. Well, until one of the two sues each other again. frown

Samsung paid Apple more than $548 million in December related to a jury verdict from 2012. It is seeking to pare back the $399 million of that amount that was awarded for infringing on the designs of the iPhone's rounded-corner front face, bezel and colorful grid of icons, saying they contributed only marginally to a complex device. A Samsung spokeswoman said in a statement the court's review "can lead to a fair interpretation of patent law that will support creativity and reward innovation." An Apple representative declined comment.
