Samsung ordered to pay $290.45 million in damages to Apple in feature-copying case
London – Samsung has been ordered to pay 290.45 million dollars in damages to Apple for copying features from the iPhone.
A jury sitting in a retrial between the two mobile giants made the decision in San Jose, California.
According to the Mirror, last year, Apple was awarded over one billion dollars after it convinced a jury that Samsung copied various iPhone features.
Some of the features included using fingers to pinch and zoom on the screen, design touches like the phone’s flat, black glass screen.
Apple had requested 379.8 million dollars in damages, but Samsung argued that it would pay 52.7 million dollars.
Apple and Samsung have been fighting in the courts for over two years.
Samsung manufactures phones that use the Android operating system, which is developed by Google.
