Supreme Court to Hear Apple v. Samsung Patent Case
The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear Samsung's petition regarding its patent-based litigation with Apple. Samsung made the request in December and hopes the Supreme Court will reverse lower courts' decisions regarding the damages owed to Apple over the latter's design patents. Apple is seeking reimbursement for profits earned by Samsung for allegedly copying its smartphone designs. The case has been winding its way through various courts for five years now. Granting Samsung's request to hear the case doesn't mean Samsung has won anything; however, the Supreme Court can set precedent in how the victors in patent cases are awarded damages. It's not clear when the Supreme Court will review the Samsung/Apple case, nor when a decision might be made.
