Apple and Samsung respond to jury's decision in US infringement case | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog


The verdict is in, and the companies respond. Samsung:

“Today’s verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices. It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies. Consumers have the right to choices, and they know what they are buying when they purchase Samsung products. This is not the final word in this case or in battles being waged in courts and tribunals around the world, some of which have already rejected many of Apple’s claims. Samsung will continue to innovate and offer choices for the consumer.”

It’s funny how the losers in patent battles always say it’s about a loss of choice for the American consumer. Except that if they copied someone else, was there ever a choice?
