For those unfamiliar, that amount was reduced from a whopping $1.05 billion to $548 million. Granted it’s still a lot of money, but no doubt it is a lot more manageable than a billion dollars.The arrangement was revealed in papers filed to a California court by both companies on Thursday.The dispute began in 2011 when Apple said Samsung was using some of its patented technologies without permission.The payment does not mean the end of the row as, next year, a US court will decide if Apple deserves to be paid more for damages.A joint case management statement filed to the California court revealed that Samsung had agreed to pay Apple within 10 days of receiving an invoice.The payment is part of a bigger $1bn damages award that Apple was granted in 2012 by a jury that considered the case. That total was reduced on appeal to $930m. Further legal action split this total into two parts – a $548m chunk for technology patents and a $382m chunk for allegations that Samsung copied Apple’s packaging materials.A jury is due to decide on the second damages award in 2016.Despite agreeing to pay the first part of the settlement, Samsung said it reserved the right to get its money back if there were further developments in the case. The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is currently reviewing some of the patents Apple used in the court case.Apple has disputed Samsung’s right to a refund if the patents are ruled invalid.One of the patents in the case, covering ways to add the “pinch to zoom” feature to smartphones, has already been ruled invalid by the USPTO. Apple is appealing against this decision.Soon after the USPTO made the decision to invalidate the pinch patent, Samsung lodged a call to review the entire case with the US appeals court. This call was rejected.“After years of not getting a cent, more than half a billion dollars is significant,” wrote patent expert Florian Mueller in a blogpost.However, he added, the continuing uncertainty about the validity of some Apple patents and Samsung’s plans to file fresh appeals meant the case was a long way from reaching resolution.Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Linkedin Abhishek Awasthi var block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801 = new tdBlock(); = "td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801"; block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801.atts = '{"limit":3,"ajax_pagination":"next_prev","live_filter":"cur_post_same_categories","td_ajax_filter_type":"td_custom_related","class":"td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801_rand","td_column_number":3,"live_filter_cur_post_id":30111,"live_filter_cur_post_author":"27","block_template_id":"","header_color":"","ajax_pagination_infinite_stop":"","offset":"","td_ajax_preloading":"","td_filter_default_txt":"","td_ajax_filter_ids":"","el_class":"","color_preset":"","border_top":"","css":"","tdc_css":"","tdc_css_class":"td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801_rand","tdc_css_class_style":"td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801_rand_style"}'; block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801.td_column_number = "3"; block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801.block_type = "td_block_related_posts"; block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801.post_count = "3"; block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801.found_posts = "6741"; block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801.header_color = ""; block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801.ajax_pagination_infinite_stop = ""; block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801.max_num_pages = "2247"; tdBlocksArray.push(block_td_uid_3_5d3764be9d801);RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORHow to Download and Convert Videos with WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory ProXiaomi Mi A3 with 48MP triple camera, Snapdragon 665 processor launchedAl Solves Rubik’s Cube In Less Than A Second1 COMMENT Florin December 7, 2015 at 5:44 pm Then Apple should be forced to pay for all of they product line to other companies, since they didn`t invent anything, they just took things on the market and made it their own… mostly Braun design.
