as the famous saying that 'bad-publicity is still a publicity' so Samsung has for sure benefitted from the ongoing brawl. As for Apple, it is a fight to appease their ego.

JMO/IANAL:

IMO this is merely the end of the beginning.  I have read that large patent suits are almost always appealed and to some extent (IANAL) the purpose of the first trial is to establish grounds for appeal rather than to produce a meaningful result.  I think this a reason Judge Koh has imposed such strict time limits.

All this will end when Apple and/or Samsung runs out of money.  Meanwhile, Apple has done a great job of making itself known as a Patent Aggressor instead of a creator of Cool Products and has brought Samsung products into the public eye better than any Samsung marketing campaign could have done.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
