    Breaking News - In the Case of Apple vs. Samsung: Samsung found Guilty




    A federal jury in San Jose late Friday delivered a verdict in the landmark patent trial between Apple and Samsung.

    Lawyers on both sides, staying nearby at hotels, headed to the courtroom to hear the verdict.

    Jurors found that on the screen bounce-back patent, Samsung infringed on all phones and tablets. On patent 915, pinch and zoom, the jury found Samsung infringed with all but three devices.

    Samsung violated design patent for the front of the iPhone for all but one phone, according to the jury. On the home screen patent, Samsung violated with all phones, the jury found. Samsung did not violate Apple design patents on the iPad with its Galaxy Tab, the jury found.

    The technology titans -- Apple is the dominant tablet maker and Samsung leads in smartphone sales -- have battled for weeks in federal court here over allegations that Samsung copied Apple's mobile device designs and software.

    The case could determine damages of up to $2.5 billion against Samsung and as much as $422 million for Apple. It could also rewrite how global patent cases are decided in terms of mobile products.

    U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh presided over the San Jose courtroom. Last month, she awarded Apple a preliminary injunction that could force Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer from stores pending the outcome of the trial.

    Apple has presented hundreds of pages of documents, as well as the testimony of scientists, executives and engineers, to support its claims that its iPad and iPhone are being copied by Samsung. Apple wants products pulled and $2.5 billion in damages.
    In his closing argument, Apple attorney Harold McElhinny alleged that Samsung documents show that in three months, it was able to copy four years of Apple development. He said they show "hundreds of pages of copying directions" for icon design and functions such as tap-to-zoom that were put into the Galaxy phone and tablet line.
    He also said Samsung met with Google, which advised the company to change Galaxy designs, but Samsung declined.
    "The damages in this case should be large, because the infringement was massive," McElhinny said.
    Samsung lawyer Charles Verhoeven, in closing, shot back that the documents don't show what Apple claims. "It's a shell game for counsel trying to mislead you," he said. "They have to prove to you with their evidence that consumers will be deceived, there's a likelihood of deception. This doesn't meet the burden of proof."

    Apple has presented hundreds of pages of documents, as well as the testimony of scientists, executives and engineers. The company is seeking to have Samsung products pulled from market.

    In closing arguments on Tuesday, Apple attorney Harold McElhinny alleged that Samsung documents show that in three months, it was able to copy four years of Apple development. He said they show "hundreds of pages of copying directions" for icon design and functions such as tap-to-zoom that were put into the Galaxy phone and tablet line.

    He also said Samsung met with Google, which advised the company to change Galaxy designs, but Samsung declined.

    "The damages in this case should be large, because the infringement was massive," McElhinny said in closing arguments.

    Samsung lawyer Charles Verhoeven, in closing, shot back that the documents don't show what Apple claims. "It's a shell game for counsel trying to mislead you," he said. "They have to prove to you with their evidence that consumers will be deceived, there's a likelihood of deception. This doesn't meet the burden of proof."

    Much is at stake over patents that cover Apple's graphic user interface patents for touch screen functionality. Samsung, in effect, serves as a proxy for Google because the search giant's Android software powers the Samsung devices in question. The outcome could have implications for patent cases worldwide and for other makers of Android-powered devices.

    Samsung is seeking royalties for specific wireless technologies used by Apple.

    Apple shares edged up 0.11% to $663.95 in after-hours trading after the news.
