Game over: Samsung to pay Apple $930M, sales ban denied

Apple logoApple vs Samsung largest-scale patent lawsuit, taking place in the US, is now over. Apple was awarded just under $930 million in damages, but its request for judge Koh to ban the infringing products was denied. This means that Samsung is free to continue selling the infringing devices in the US.

The first huge patent trial between Apple and Samsung started in 2012 and its first verdict was for Apple to receive $1.05 billion for the damages caused by its infringed patents. Samsung argued there were some discrepancies between the numbers the jury awarded Apple and after a new trial Samsung's fine was reduced to $929.8 million.

Now this case is officially closed and while Apple has won $930 million its request for permanent sales ban against Samsung was denied.

Apple has already started a new lawsuit against Samsung adding more relevant devices such as the Galaxy S III. Both sides failed to reach an agreement outside the courtroom, so the new trial will be starting in the end of this month.

We are yet to see if Samsung has taken the necessary measures to side-step the infringing technologies or if it will be facing another huge fine.
