The jury in a San Jose, California court has ruled that Samsung stole designs from Apple in developing its smartphones and computer tablets. As a result, the court has ordered the South Korean conglomerate to pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages.

Predictably, Samsung was not pleased with the decision and plans to file for an appeal, even accusing the Cupertino-based company of using US patent laws in its attempt to dominate the smartphone market.

In a statement, Samsung said that it was “unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners”. Meanwhile, Apple applauded the decision, even praising the court for “for finding Samsung’s behaviour wilful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn’t right”.

The nine-person jury deliberated for less than three days before coming up with a unanimous decision, rejecting all of Samsung’s claims and upholding five of Apple’s claims.

The ruling comes after a court in South Korea ruled that both firms had copied each other’s patents, while a British court dismissed Apple’s claims that Samsung had infringed its patents.

Apple has also filed for an injunction to block Samsung products deemed infringing in the United States at a follow-up hearing on September 20th.
