In the case that has been viewed by the tech public as a clash of epic proportions, Apple has come out on top. The jury responsible for passing a verdict on the case has found that Apple did indeed have first dibs on certain design aspects that Samsung was using. The total bill for the Korean tech giant? over 1 Billion US Dollars. Yes. With a “B.” This included patents for the “Pinch to zoom” feature, “tap to zoom” and “bounce back scrolling.” Adding salt to the wound, the courts also rules that Apple had not infringed on any of Samsung’s patents, and so the Korean manufacturer doesn’t get a single cent back. Samsung’s side has urged people not to see this ruling as a “as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer.” We, as a nation have recently been flooded with plagiarism news, so share your thoughts. Whose side are you on?
