A federal court jury on Thursday ordered Samsung to pay Apple $533 million or copying iPhone design features in a patent case dating back seven years.
Jurors tacked on an additional $5 million in damages for a pair of patented functions. The award appeared to be a bit of a victory for Apple, which had argued in court that design essentially was the iPhone.
The case was sent back to the district court following a Supreme Court decision ro revisit an earlier $400 million damage award. The jury essentially split the difference between Apple’s request for $1 billion and Samsung’s argument for $28 million.
