Just in: The jury has (very surprisingly) reached a verdict in the Apple Samsung decision. The Verge has the live blog: Live: Apple vs. Samsung: jury decision.
Will update when I hear more.
Update 1: Looks like it’s going to Apple. Samsung has been found to infringe on Apple’s patents (so far) on most (but not all) devices.
Update 2: So mostly siding with Apple for the phones, no infringement on the tablets, and again phones yes, tablets no for the “should have known” question.
Regardless of my own opinions, I think this is bad news and not a good precedent to set (if it’d gone to Samsung I’d say the same thing). Also I’m sure that the appeals have already been filed.
