".....Apple was awarded $930 million."

 

The key word here is awarded.   Did Samsung ever actually cut a check ?

@Whoopty    Agreed.  And if I recall - some of the "design issues" are about aspects as meaningless as the shape of a button.  Give me a break !

East vs. West: A Tale of Two Worlds

Samsung and Apple at it again ?    Figures.   But what strikes me in this piece is once again how Asian companies hold their management accountable. One bad year and heads roll ?    

While I think one bad year is a bit short but I can appreciate this method.  Would American business do this ?   This is rhetorical of course.   Because as most clearly understand American execs for the most part survive years of endless losses and poor performance.

Only to be well compensated themselves.    Only the size of the economy overcomes this unnecessary drag on the GDP.

This is the sport of kings. IP law and suits with counter-suits.

Lawyers
I swear the only people that really win out of these lawsuits are the lawyers. Both companes spend millions of dollars fighting one another, with it taking so long that any judgement won't affect sales of the hardware in question and consumers lose out too, because product development is stifled by this sort of patent court proceedings.
