In the fall of 2011 Apple's Late CEO Steve Jobs stated; "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong. I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this." And while Apple has won several cases against Samsung, today "A U.S. appeals court overturned a $120 million jury verdict against Samsung, finally handing the South Korean smartphone maker a significant win in its longstanding patent feud with top rival Apple."
The report further noted that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., said Samsung Electronics Co Ltd did not infringe Apple's 'quick links' patent, and that two other patents covering the iPhone's slide-to-unlock and auto-correct features were invalid.
To add insult to injury, "The court also said Apple was liable for infringing one of Samsung's patents." Ouch – it's not a good day for Apple legal.
