Will this back and forth ever end? Apple wins, then Samsung wins. Samsung then will have a verdict overturned, then Apple too. Then Samsung. Then they both sue each other for using letters of the alphabet in their company names etc..etc then Google sue me because I said ‘Alphabet.’
Does it matter who wins anymore?
BREAKING: Supreme Court throws out $399 million judgment against Samsung in company's patent dispute with Apple over iPhone design.
— The Associated Press (@AP) December 6, 2016
From Fox Business:
The Supreme Court on Tuesday sided with Samsung in its big-money smartphone patent fight with Apple, throwing out an appeals court ruling that said the South Korean company had to pay a $399 million penalty to its American rival for copying key iPhone designs.
The justices in their 8-0 ruling sent the case back to the lower court for further proceedings.
The decision gives Samsung another chance to try to get back a big chunk of the money it paid Apple in December following a 2012 jury verdict that it infringed Apple’s iPhone patents and mimicked its distinctive appearance in making the Galaxy and other competing devices.
The court held that a patent violator does not always have to fork over its entire profits from the sales of products using stolen designs, if the designs covered only certain components and not the whole thing.
The ruling followed a ferocious legal battle between the world’s top two smartphone manufacturers that began in 2011 when Apple sued Samsung, asserting that its rival stole its technology and the iPhone’s trademarked appearance. It was one of the most closely watched patent cases to come before the top U.S. court in recent years.

@Reuters looks like Samsung has much bigger problems now in Korea. Criminal Fraud bribery investigation. Could be Enron in the making.
