    It probably won't be too hard to remember the clash of the titans that was Apple vs. Samsung back in 2012. The story dominated the news throughout most of 2011 and 2012, and culminated in Apple defeating Samsung in court to the tune of a $930 Million court settlement (reduced by Judge Koh from $1.05 Billion). Well, that epic fight is back in the news again...

    The appeals court finally ruled in the case and it partially reversed the original court's decision. Basically, the court agreed that Samsung infringed upon Apple's design patents, but the company did not infringe on Apple's trade dress. This means that a sizable portion of the $930 Million settlement will be reduced (possibly by as much as $382 Million, leaving $548 Million).

    While the final result is still a hefty number, it's dramatically reduced from the original $1.05 Billion. We can all breathe a sigh of relief as we can finally, finally, finally put this to rest! :rolleyes:

      There's still the Supreme Court. I'm sure Samsung will not pay up until they've exhausted every avenue to get the award reduced as much as they possibly can.
