Samsung Hit With an Extra £180m Fine For Copying iPhone Features

By Adam Clark Estes on at

A US federal jury has ordered that Samsung must pay Apple $290 million (roughly £180 million) for copying iPhone features. This is far less than the original ruling by a judge for $1.05 billion/£648.3 million but probably won't be the final figure as Samsung is expected to appeal. Again.

This extra £180 million comes on top of an initial ruling awarding Apple £339 million. Looks like lots of Samsung executives' children will be having a less lavish Christmas this year. [BBC]
