Don Reisinger has the story for Fortune at Samsung Will Pay $548M to Apple for Alleged Patent Infringement writing:
"The $548 million in damages was finally decided by the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this year. In August, Samsung’s petition to the court for a new trial was struck down. The decision left Samsung with two options: pay up and move on or appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court."Take a look at Reisinger's article for more details.
We hope the case is appealed.
Anything that the Federal Circuit has decided has a great likelihood of being flawed to the core, especially in the area of the validity of tech patents.
Moreover, the standards applied for the granting of damages in these kinds of patent-trolling cases are ridiculous.
