Samsung ordered to pay Apple over $1BILLION after losing patent case

Apple has been awarded more than $1 billion in damages as it prevailed in its patent-infringement case against Samsung.
The jury decided that the majority of Samsung smartphones and tablets violate patents held by Apple including features such as the zoom in and out inovation achieved by tapping the screen.
The jury also decided that Samsung's infringement was intentional and said that Samsung's countersuit for $399 million against Apple was without merit.

I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. Nearly all the devices I've seen available today copy Apple's designs in every way possible.

Are you two serious? Apple has copied every other design and just put the best of the features from these hundreds of products and made a single device, not even more superior... considering it's made out of the cheapest quality supplies available.

The judge loved his iPhone, I'll bet.
