After Samsung lost to Apple, Samsung sent an internal memo to employees and said it was “disappointed” to have been found guilty of patent infringement. The memo also says that it is “regrettable” that the court’s decision caused concern among our employees, as well as our loyal customers.” Last Friday, Apple was awarded $1.05B by a jury that found Samsung had committed patent infringement.
The memo also states that a final ruling from the judge still remains. Samsung will probably appeal the decision during the appeals process. In addition, the memo also states that the company will continue to fight Apple. On the other hand, Apple said that the case was about “much more than patents or money” in an internal memo. For Apple, the case was about values.
“History has shown there has yet to be a company that has won the hearts and minds of consumers and achieved continuous growth, when its primary means to competition has been the outright abuse of patent law, not the pursuit of innovation,” the memo reads.
Oh, shut up, Samsung. When have they ever innovated? I think by innovation they meant blatantly copying Apple, right?
