Both Apple and Samsung were found to be guilty of infringing on some of each other’s patents, with a jury awarding Apple $119.6 million and Samsung $158,400. Samsung was found to infringe Apple’s “quick links” patent, and some devices infringed upon Apple’s “slide to unlock” patent as well, CNET reports. Apple was found to infringe upon a Samsung patent for photo and video organization. Neither company got anything close to what it demanded, with Apple seeking $2.2 billion and Samsung looking for $6.2 million. The jury will meet again today to reconsider damages on the infringement of Apple’s autocorrect patent.
