Yes, the patent wars: they seem to be never-ending among some of the largest (and then some) tech companies in the world. However, none of them are as entertaining or as unique (or repetitive, I might add) as those between Apple and Samsung.
This time, Samsung is defending patents that pertain to more recent devices, like the GS3, which sold in high quantities than the devices that Apple targeted before. Thus, the risk and the amount in damages that could possibly be paid would be much higher — higher than the amount slightly short of a billion dollars that Samsung paid back in 2011-12.
The new trial will begin at a court in San Jose come March. Needless to say, we’ll talk about it, because it will be interesting.
