Dutch courts have ordered that Apple pay Samsung damages for violation of patent EP1188269. The patent in question is a Samsung owned patent relating to how phones and tablet PCs connect to the internet. The courts did not disclose how much Apple will be ordered to pay Samsung but a Samsung official issued this statement.
In accordance with the ruling, we will seek adequate compensation for the damages Apple and its products have caused.
Samsung originally claimed that Apple had violated 4 patents held by the company but the Dutch courts only found Apple guilty of 1 violation. This is the second lawsuit Apple has been found guilty of as of late. Apple was recently ordered to pay $2.3m in Australia for false claims of 4G capabilities in the iPad.
Apple and Samsung have been engaged in legal warfare for the past few years now and there seems to be no letting up. Analysts have said that with so many cases being fought by the two companies in different countries, neither party may ever be able to actually claim that they are the winner. At this point let’s hope that the patent system is changed for the better so that these disputes don’t continue to take place so often.
