Samsung ordered to pay Apple $1.05B in patent case

SAN FRANCISCO – A jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple more than $1 billion Friday after ruling the South Korean giant infringed on the US firm’s patents for a variety of smartphones and tablet computers, media reported.

The reports said the jury rejected Samsung’s counterclaims against Apple, in a big win for the Silicon Valley giant, which had claimed its iconic iPhone and iPad had been illegally copied.
