Well, you may have met a few geniuses, but statistically speaking, people with higher level of educations do have better understanding in their respective fields.

Yes Rick, I would agree. I think the judge realizing the gravity of the case, was very methodical in her preparations both with how she organized the case, and the instructions to the jury to enable them to make a decision, probably to prevent its being overturned by higher courts.

And Verizon is probably the most expensive cellular service provider there is in the US, so that ought to say something.

Apparently the jury uses similar math: Apple gets $1.05B Samsung gets $0

Does anyone else find it odd that Apple seem to think that $450 million is a ridiculous amount to pay Samsung for infringement, yet does not bat an eyelid asking for $2500 million from Samsung for infringement?

This case makes my head hurt. I wish there was a way to punish both companies equally, and the lawyers as well, for wasting everyone's time on this. It's dumb. Apple has forever been stealing ideas, inventions, and design from other people. Now they are mad that someone thought their re-mixed ideas were good enough to steal. Samsung never would have bothered trying to enforce their patents if that had just been left alone. Embrace the remix. http://www.ted.com/talks/kirby_ferguson_embrace_the_remix.html

Actually I think the case has been very carefully constructed to walk a jury through the issues they must decide, and I credit Judge Koh for a big piece of that work. The jury can decide on each count whether Samsung does or does not infringe based on defenses presented such as invalidity due to prior art.

There actually was a survey Samsung did at Best Buy to investigate unusually high rates of return that suggested users were confused about whether or not Galaxy Tabs were iPads. This was presented in court.

Apple is alleging infringement of three utility patents on user interface and two design patents on industrial design issues as well as infringement of registered and unregistered trade dress. For the latter, buyer confusion called dilution is one of the legal criteria.
