Apple wins IP case against Samsung
Samsung was found to have infringed on a number of Apple's patents for the iPhone.

Apple has been awarded $1.05 billion in damages in its US copyright trial against Samsung.

The nine person jury decided that a number of Samsung mobile devices infringed on Apple's intellectual property related to its iconic iPhone.

The jury also rejected all counter claims from Samsung.

Apple has said it intends to seek import bans on certain Samsung products at a follow up hearing that is due to take place on 20th September. Samsung is set to appeal the ruling.

Samsung said in a statement that the ruling will ultimately mean less choice and higher prices for the consumer.

The court ruled that Samsung infringed on a number of patents, including design patents for the physical appearance of the iPhone, the look of how the OS displays text and icons, the ‘bounce back response' and several touch and multi-touch operations such as dragging documents, pinch to zoom and twist to rotate.
