A patent case that began back in 2011 has reached a conclusion, with Samsung ordered to pay about $539 million to Apple over infringements of the latter’s patents in devices that are now long gone. Unfortunately for Samsung, the “infringing component” for the design patents seems to have been considered by the jury as being the entire phone. The result is that a great deal of Samsung’s profits from selling the infringing devices ended up composing the damages. People started arguing about the validity and value of design patents a long time ago and they haven’t stopped yet. Or will they cut their losses and just be happy to stop paying the legal fees that probably rivaled the damages assigned?
