The $ 539 million verdict was given in favor of Apple. Initially, Samsung, with its legal team, was going to challenge the verdict; but ultimately reached a settlement with Apple out of court.
Apple, as reported by The Verge, declined to disclose the terms of the settlement, stating, “We believe deeply in the value of design, and our teams work tirelessly to create innovative products that delight our customers. This case has always been about more than money. Apple ignited the smart-phone revolution with the iPhone, and it is a fact that Samsung blatantly copied our design. It is important that we continue to protect the hard work and innovation of so many people at Apple. We’re grateful to the jury for their service and pleased they agree that Samsung should pay for copying our products.” – Business Today
