Apple-Samsung: The Final Trial Verdict

Introduction

Date: 31 May 2018. Duration: 15:38

Since 2011, Apple and Samsung have been fighting in the US court system about whether Samsung infringed Apple’s patents and violated US antitrust law by copying the first-generation iPhone. A jury of eight in San Jose, California found last week that Samsung must pay Apple $538.6 million for infringing three iPhone design patent. While less than the $1.067 billion Apple had sought, the verdict was a blow to Samsung, which had argued it should pay no more than $28 million for infringing the patents. Mike Swift and Amy Miller talk to James Panichi about the verdict in what is expected to be the final trial in the long-running case.
