Clearly a biased panel passed the verdict.

Samsung is making mobile phones since year 1988 while Apple is making mobile phones only since year 2007.
Not to mention that Apple copied the idea of a rounded corner rectangle looking mobile phone from others since almost all other mobile phones were rectangles with rounded corners before Apple even thought of producing one. Plus that Apple copied the idea of a mobile phone with a screen a speaker a mic an internal antenna a battery chipsets memory a SIM card, bluetooth, wireless, headsets, apps and games on phone, icons on screen, alarm, clock, calendar, schedule, voice call, Internet, SMS, MMS, Email, Browser, Camera, GPS, Video player, App store, ringtones, touchscreen, the idea of a mobile OS and many more features that mobile phones have had long before Apple even thought of producing one. So look how many things Apple had copied from others and especially from Samsung, the whole mobile phone concept.

Anyone can manufacture processor, qualcomm, texas instruments are just vendors. ARM owns all patents and apple partially own ARM.

Jesus .. I just don't get it why samsung just doens't stop selling processors (soc's) to apple iphone .. just let apple do it own stuff , and see how it goes.

iphone is a great concept high spec inners with low ress display coupled with stripped down OS .. something that the android world needed .. in a time of 400+ ppi (wtf) and bloated TW and what not.
But ask me 700+ euros for a screen smaller than an s4 mini ..gtfo apple .. I pay that for a note 3.. iphone as great at it is , aint worth more than a s4 mini

As usual Greedy Apple the very company who, by there own admission are shameless at copying.
We are talking simple economics. I care as a CONSUMER who has his choices taken away so that a certain manufacturer can avoid competition. Apple sucks

Obama vitowed a verdict against Apple in the past... seems US laws are biased and for none-US companies only... Apple is a massive road block on technology improvement... in my view Apple must be the one banned from everywhere

Typical of craple with their i-phonies. When you desperate you start to grasp at whatever you can get. If it wasn't for americans this company would be bankrupt and following blackberry.

What a funny country, talking about freedom and justice in one hand and banning others just because they are not from their country in second hand!
The president gave a veto against Samsung although the court "the hall of justice" verdict in favor of Samsung! While Apple is allowed to do most silly things like banning rounded edge phones! Car manufacturers beware if Apple went to car business, next thing they will do patent the four wheels.
