Samsung to pay $119.6 million to Apple for infringing two of its patents


A federal court in California has ordered Samsung to pay $119.6 million to Apple for infringing two of its patents.

The jury delivered its verdict in a federal court in San Jose on Friday in the latest lawsuit involving Samsung and Apple.

Apple had sought $2 billion at the trial, accusing Samsung of violating patents on smartphone features.

The court also ruled that Apple infringed Samsung’s patents and awarded $158,000 in damages.

Apple had sought $2.2 billion after accusing Samsung of infringing five of its patents covering functions such as the “slide to unlock” from its devices.

Samsung denied any wrongdoing and sought $6 million after arguing Apple had infringed two of its smartphone patents related to camera use and video transmission.

This verdict marks the latest legal battle over intellectual property between the world’s top two smartphone makers.

Apple and Samsung have been fighting patent battles for years and across many countries.

Two years ago, a separate jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $930 million after finding it had used Apple technology.

That verdict is still being challenged by Samsung.
