To come to their decision jurors had to work through a 20-page document that required them to dissolve information between devices from which both companies claimed infringed on which patents. However to get down to the nitty gritty details of what patent was infringed by what device seems like a head ache in itself. It was not at all an easy task considering Apple accused nearly two dozen of Samsung’s devices.

Apple claims it was prototypes of iPhone and iPad designs that never saw the light of day. Furthermore, financial data that was highly detailed seemed to go far beyond what the company typically made public. Also there were e-mails between company executives one of which included mention of high interest in a smaller version of the iPad..

 

It is unfortunate for Samsung however if they messed up then they deserve to reap the benefit.
