The ramblings of Rich Bishop

Hello I'm Rich Bishop. I talk about life, the universe, politics and web development. All my own views (and mostly joking), not of Rich Media Ltd (where I'm the boss and a web developer), Staffs Uni (where I'm a part-time lecturer), Mediche Ltd (where I'm a Director) or KicFM (where I'm a trustee)

Samsung told to pay Apple $1bn

Samsung (South Korean) told to pay Apple (US) $1bn by an US judge, in a US court, with a US jury, at a time where the US needs all the financial help it can get

To be completely frank though, we were advised by our lawyers to stay out of the US (and India and China) with the device, because in 9/10 patent infringement cases US (/Indian,Chinese) courts find in favour of US (/Indian,Chinese) companies, regardless of blame.

Yep… that’s right my American friends… you’re legal system is compared to that of India and China!

I can see a counter-suit in EMEA coming up… and I don’t think it’ll go the same way.

A US jury has said Samsung should pay Apple more than $1bn in damages in an intellectual property row.
