AppleInsider reports that both Samsung and Apple CEO Tim Cook have commented following yesterdayâ€™s successful outcome for Apple in its patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung. According to All Things Dâ€™s Kara Swisher, in an internal memo sent to Apple employees, in which, aside from using some of the same content as Appleâ€™s official statement on the matter, Cook also said that Appleâ€™s lawsuit â€œhas always been about something much more important than patents or money. Itâ€™s about values.â€
Meanwhile, as AppleInsider reports, Samsung is understandably fuming about the result, to say the least, and issued an official statement saying, among other things, that â€œTodayâ€™s verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices.â€
Finally, following on from the verdict, AppleInsider also reports that Apple is looking to file a preliminary injunction to stop Samsung selling the devices that are covered by the ruling, such as its smartphones, in the US.
