New suggestion, make posting to news threads like agreeing to terms and conditions that you have to read through/scroll to the bottom before the post option is highlighted. Far too many people are jumping the gun and assuming that this is Apple suing Samsung. This is simply a recalculation of a previous suit in which Apple one and Samsung was supposed to pay $1,000,000,000 but it was deemed that a portion of that was not calculated properly. This is the recalculation amount.

The difficult part with that, though, is without patents any company could quite literally copy the entire design 100% and sell the same product while stealing a portion of your sales. Profits would significantly decrease. Would there be a wild drive to keep making the best of the best, sure, but then another company would come along and do the same thing, again, and again, and again.Edited by Flatliner - 11/27/13 at 7:15am
