This is a planned move to designed to impact on the "real" law suit currently underway in the US. Samsung are so dodgy.

35k? Seems a bit low for patent violations, just 0.02 cents/device...

In the reality, Samsung is a late comer. Before iphone was popular, Samsung did not manufacture the Apple style touch phone and pad. Samsung may copy many features of Apple, Sony and Panasonic. Back in 1990s, Samsung was not much competitive like now. Samsung is a pride of South Korea. It is getting bigger than Sony now.

Actually it's not quite in total favor for Samsung. It counts for both companies. Best result "for us" consumers. These kind of court results will force companies more and more to settle an agreement instead of going to court with all kind of 'ban' risks.

Wow. A South Korean court ruled in favor of Samsung. Shocked.

You got to be joking Zenpun. Samsung may have copied Apple, but Sony and Panasonic? lol... why would they copy such crap nobody wants or don't even no about?

Do Sony and Panasonic even make phones? lol...

Samsung getting bigger than Sony? uh... don't look now but it's like 100 times bigger than Sony, and I'm talking about Samsung Electronics alone, not the entire conglomerate. Gee when did that happen? Rip Van Winkle must have woken up from his long sleep... lol.

Without Samsung, Any xyzPad from Apple would cost at least 20% more. A bit competition does not hurt!

Without Apple, Samsung wouldn't have any smartphones or tablet computers.

@ Serrano. I'm not too sure about that. I mean without IBM there would be no Apple. The technology was already out there before Apple made the iPhone. I don't know how it would have happened without Apple, but it definitely would have happened and would have smartphones and tablets. The technology community has been investing in and building these things since at least the early 80's.

Are you joking? A) A lot of people think Sony and Panasonic are quality products. Sony is ahead on TV technology-well, I believe in future technology, I imagine the market quality is about the same. I'm not going to research that at work, so I will admit I may be wrong. I don't think I'm wrong in saying that people know and care about Sony and Panasonic.

Do Sony and Panasonic even make phones? lol...

B) Sony has a pretty successful cell phone line in America-Panasonic does OK making home phones, which for some reason people still buy in America.

C) I get it. I've read enough of your post to know you have an extreme SK bias, and that's fine. I'm not sure why you're here, but that's your deal and that's cool too. But Samsung probably did copy Apple, and Apple probably copied Samsung (and many other companies as well). It happens all the time in the tech business. But Samsung lost to Apple in marketing and actual functionality (the latter being debatable). However, saying "no one cares" about Sony or Panasonic does nothing to strengthen your argument, in my opinion.

This is samsung, copying, stealing ideas, usurping technologies. I really think that this is a legitimate Korean company,fake.

Samsung just lost to Apple in the United States. It now owes Apple $1.5 billion in damages. Samsung's business strategy of copying market leaders has finally backfired in a big way.

Even a country is involved in legalizing copying, a great copying machine nation.
