Samsung will not easily end up on the receiving end of the largest patent infringement verdict in U.S. history when a U.S. jury awarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages. The verdict, could lead to an outright ban on sales of key Samsung products and will likely cement Apple’s dominance of the growing mobile device market.
In a statement, Samsung said it will “move immediately to file post-verdict motions to overturn this decision in this court, and if we are not successful, we will appeal this decision to the court of appeals.”
“Consumers have the right to choices, and they know what they are buying when they purchase Samsung products. This is not the final word in this case or in battles being waged in courts and tribunals around the world, some of which have already rejected many of Apple’s claims. Samsung will continue to innovate and offer choices for the consumer.”
