Judge Rules That Samsung Did Not Willfully Infringe on Apple's PatentsCasey Chan1/29/13 10:45pmFiled to: Apple vs samsungAppleSamsungPatentsJudgeCourt65EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkBecause the court system is an inescapable never ending maze of appeals and paperwork, a ruling doesn't seem to mark the end of anything. Even when the court said Samsung had to pay a billion dollars to Apple back in August, it can rule something differently tomorrow. Or at least, tweak and overturn something. Tonight, Judge Lucy Koh ruled that Samsung's infringement of the Apple patents were not 'willful' which means Samsung might be able to get a coupon on the billion it owes Apple. Maybe.
