Infringement case: Jury rules for Apple, orders Samsung to pay $1.05B 25.8.2012 Salt Lake Tribune
By PAUL ELIAS The Associated Press Published Aug 24, 2012 05:46PM MDT San Jose, Calif. • After a year of scorched-earth litigation, a jury decided Friday that Samsung ripped off the innovative technology used by Apple to create its revolutionary iPhone and iPad. The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion. An appeal is expected. Apple Inc. filed its patent infringement lawsuit in April 2011 and engaged legions of the country’s highest-paid patent lawyers to demand $2.5 billion from its top smartphone competitor. Samsung Electronics Co. fired back with its... ...
What Apple's victory over Samsung means 25.8.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
US firm may now go after Motorola and HTC, while Android considered likely to continue to dominate smartphone market For Tim Cook, Apple's chief executive, who took over from Steve Jobs a year ago, the court victory over Samsung will have been sweet. Normally, patent disputes rarely produce clean victories. But the decision by the nine-member jury in San Jose, just a few miles from Apple's headquarters, is dramatic. Apple had been suing Samsung for $2.5bn in damages, claiming Samsung's phones and tablets copied its devices' behaviour and appearance; Samsung counter-claimed about $200m, saying the iPhone and iPad used its wireless 3G standard technologies, and methods for tasks such as sending a photo by email from a phone. Apple won on almost every count it claimed; Samsung, on absolutely none. It was a dramatic demonstration of the home court advantage. Samsung Electronics can bear the $1.05bn in damages – in the second quarter of this year alone its operating profit was $5.86bn – but ...

Apple crushes Samsung in quest for global tech domination | Dan Gillmor 25.8.2012 Guardian: Comment is Free
A US jury has rubberstamped Apple's exploitation of the patent system. But Samsung's $1bn loss will cost consumers dear A home-town jury has given Apple the world , or at least the United States, in its campaign to control smart phone and tablet market. Samsung, which decisively lost the highest-profile case to date in Apple's sue-everywhere strategy against the Android operating system, will surely appeal the verdict handed down the San Jose, California, federal court on Friday afternoon. And even if Samsung ultimately has to pay the $1bn judgement , the company can afford it. But we're likely to see a ban on many mobile devices from Samsung and other manufacturers in the wake of this case, as an emboldened Apple tries to create an unprecedented monopoly. If so, the ultimate loser will be competition in the technology marketplace, with even more power accruing to a company that already has too much. The jury's quick decision – just two days of deliberations in an immensely complex ...

Apple awarded over $1bn in Samsung patent infringement trial 25.8.2012 The Guardian -- Front Page
Jury finds that critical features of smartphone and tablet design were copied and dismisses South Korean firm's counterclaims Apple has been awarded more than $1bn in damages after its rival smartphone and tablet manufacturer Samsung was found to have copied critical features of its iPhone and iPad. The US jury stunned observers by returning a decision after just two and a half days' deliberation following four weeks of legal argument. The jurors rejected every single one of the South Korean company's patent claims, and backed Apple's claim that Samsung had breached US antitrust laws by trying to keep its wireless patents as a monopoly. The decision means that Apple has gained a major weapon in its fight against Samsung, which is the biggest maker of smartphones and mobile phones in the world, and the biggest of the Android handset makers. The verdict will also be a key platform in Apple's ongoing court battles with other Android smartphone companies, including HTC and Motorola. ...

TV & Video Are Hooking Up 24.8.2012 Inc
A new offering from Roku could make smart TVs mainstream. Anthony Wood predicts that four years from now, the bulk of television viewing will come through the Internet. And his new product could help put Internet TV over the top. Wood's company, Roku, which is based in Saratoga, California, sells set-top boxes that stream online movies and shows to customers' TV sets. This fall, Roku is launching the Streaming Stick, which Wood hopes will lead the charge to make Internet TV--and his company's technology--ubiquitous. Although Internet-connected, or smart, televisions have been on the market for years, they haven't caught on as quickly as anticipated. One obstacle is that people hang on to their televisions for six to eight years. Plus, Internet-connected TVs are often more expensive and complicated to use. Even among those who purchase smart TVs, only about half use them to connect to the Internet, according to Forrester Research. With the Streaming Stick, which costs as little as $50, ...
