US Supreme Court denied Samsung's appeal against Apple. CNET
It's done better here than in its other patent battle concerning the design of the iPhone. That amount excluded another $382 million in damages for allegations that Samsung copied Apple's packaging materials. Samsung had appealed against this decision.
Back in 2014, Apple had taken Samsung to court for infringing on two of its patent - one, the mobile phone code that converted phone number to links for direct call option and the most prominently used smartphone feature, "slide to unlock" screen.
What's All The Hoopla About?
It is interesting that it comes at a time when the "slide to unlock" feature on Apple phones has stopped being the primary way to unlock the Apple devices.
The original verdict on the case, which came in 2014, required Samsung to pay Apple a sum equal to $120m (£91m) for infringing the three patents in question.
Tropical depression forms in Atlantic, forecasters say
Once the depression becomes a tropical storm, it is expected to veer north before moving in a northeasterly direction Wednesday. The current Met Office weather forecast for Friday is "windy with some outbreaks of rain".
The case is not without its share of drama. A three-judge panel originally overturned it, but the ruling was flipped once more after all 11 judges sitting on the patent court heard the case.
The decision by the Supreme Court to let a lower court's decision stand - leaves Samsung with a substantially high price fine.
But here's the amusing part: all the original phones involved in the battle have already been phased out of protection. Apple doesn't even use the "Slide To Unlock" feature anymore! With the ruling, Samsung will have to shell out roughly $120 million dollars to the Cupertino-based company.
The company had noted that one of Apple's patents at issue in the case had been invalidated by courts "and yet today's decision allows Apple to unjustly profit from this patent, stunts innovation and places competition in the courtroom rather than the marketplace". Apple has yet to comment on the court's judgment. The latter has directly mocked its rival in a new commercial that attacks the iPhone X. It begins by teasing iPhone users that they've been running out of space due to Apple's persistence in releasing a 16GB model.
