Samsung to get relief in Apple's $930M lawsuit win

May 18, 2015: The infamous infringement battle between Samsung and Apple doesnt seem to be reaching any dead end soon, the biggest legal battle which Apple won in 2012 relating to patent and trade dress, claiming $930 million for damages has been overturned by US court of Appeals for Federal Circuit in a latest ruling today.
However, the court reaffirmed the charges of Samsung copying the specific design patents in Apple's iPhone but not the overall trade dress as Apple claims, resulting which the previous $930 million fine will be donwsized. The judge after considering all the patents appeals said that the trade dress claims weren't legally justified leaving the final judgement to lower court. Since those appeals on which Federal court comments are related only for claims accounted $382 million, Apple still has $548 million to collect.

Apple's battle started when the iPhone company sued Samsung in 2011 for infringing and diluting Apple's patents and trade dresses.

There is no official word from both Samsung and Apple yet. If you've few more minutes to spare, you can read the judgement here
