KXIP vs KKR Live Score

In a line which seems to be one that crops up over and over again, Apple and Samsung have once again been sparring over an ongoing legal battle relating to a design patent.

Apple's lawsuit claimed Samsung, now the world's biggest handset maker, copied the design and other features of the iPhone as the smartphone market was exploding.

Koh signed off on the order Wednesday, marking the official end to Apple's claims that Samsung had ripped off its patents with its Android smartphones.

The courts handling this battle have issued numerous verdicts over time, and they've mostly been in Apple's favor.

"Plaintiff Apple Inc. and Defendants Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Samsung Electronics America, Inc., and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC would like to inform the Court that they have agreed to drop and settle their remaining claims and counterclaims in this matter", the settlement notice stated. Apple had originally been granted more than $1bn in damages from its South Korean nemesis, having convinced the courts in a 2012 ruling that Samsung had infringed on its distinctive iPhone design with various Galaxy handsets.

If you recall, Samsung was first sued by Apple in 2011 for copying the iPhone's design.

When contacted by AFP for comment, Apple referred to a statement released last month after the jury announced the damages award.

In 2012, a USA jury awarded California-based Apple $1.05bn in damages for the copied features, which included design elements like the screen that displays icons in a grid. Fast forward to May of this year, and Samsung was ordered to pay $539 million in damages in the case, but it was thought that the company might, once again, appeal the decision.

Samsung's lawyers appealed the case, bringing down the compensation of $1 billion to $400 million in 2015 at the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
