I think it is interesting that the approach in Japan is case by case basis instead of the entire set of claims being addressed at once. In all the details of the US ruling (which I only vaguely read) was this singular file synchronization feature found to be infringing on the Apple patent? Also, I found myself wondering if the judging standards/laws are different between the US and Japan. That could have a bearing on the decision in the US/Japan cases as well as whether Samsung should appeal the US ruling (which I would expect them to do anyway - just good practice).

So, if the decision is case by case basis then if Samsung is found infringing on any of the six counts then would it impact Samsung as severe as in US?

The lawsuit will, no doubt, contribute to the rise the overall operational cost to the company. The cost will likely pass down to consumer. At the end who's going to benefit.

True. on the other side I can argue, innovators didnt lose hope that their inventions cant be protected and hence they will keep innovating which will benefit the consumers.

The only thing Apple innovated was their marketing approach. They have their fan base so convinced they invented all the tech in their products they repeat this over and over on internet forums.

A patent and legal system should aim to prevent is theft by copying, such as stealing the technology of a competitor's product, or creating such a conscious, copycat duplication that one product can be confused with another, thus letting the profits of an originator be taken by an imitator. Samsung did not do this. See the link: http://www.informationweek.com/mobility/smart-phones/apple-worked-a-broken-patent-system/240006568?pgno=1

all apple fanboys gtfo Samsung is being sued quote for quote "their Phones are a square with rounded edges" Apparently apple patented the square and the U.S. accepted it. So come sue me my table is a square.

oh, come on folks. we're not talking about real innovation here. apple is litigating things like rounded-off rectangles and bounce/stretch cues for when you scroll off the end. these are OBVIOUS, and should never have been given the fig leaf of a patent in the first place.

No matter how little worth of Apple's said design and utility IPs involved in the recent court case at San Jose, it is fair to say that they are not garbage. However, it is obvious that the juries involved blatantly discriminated against Samsung. In reference to the comments publicized, the jury foreman is obviously biased. My crystal ball says that Apple likely fail in most of the upcoming legal battles outside of US where protectionism and prejudice ALWAYS prevail.

Does that mean Samsung could continue to sell the models, which are banned by the California court, to other countries like Japan which would provide judgement in favour of Samsung?
