Korea is another lower court ruling which will likely be changed as both companies go through the appeals process.

The only patent they found Samsung violated there is for bounceback. Samasung was found guilty of infringing on six patents in California.

I think you're implying that since another lower court found Samsung had infringed on a single patent that it somehow validates California, this is not the case.

There are already six finished cases that have been appealed out in Japan, Germany, Holland, Italy, France and England. Apple lost them all and was even caught submitting doctored photos of Samsung's phones as evidence is several of them.

If anyone is guilty here it's Apple, they knowingly used Samsung's standards patents in their smartphones and never paid them a dime.

The normal rate for standards patents is 5% of the subsidized price of the device, Samsung offered them a deal for half that, 2.5% and Apple sued them, that's how this whole thing got started.

Samsung has been making phones for 20 years, the technologies they've developed are what make the phones we have today possible.

Now Apple, a newcomer, is trying to come into the industry and say that everything that other cell phone manufacturers have accomplished so far isn't worth anything (evidenced by what they've paid samsung to date) but that they need to be paid huge royalties for things rounded corners and double tap to zoom. It's ridiculous.

You say personal opinion doesn't matter, they were found guilty. Do you really believe that this case is finished?
