Samsung Takes  Apple Patent Case To Supreme Court

It is the never ending war between the two Tech giants.

A week ago Samsung agreed to pay 548 million to Apple for their patent case. The case has been running for one year now.

Now, Samsung has decided to take the case to the US Supreme Court according to NY Times.

The South Korean company took this decision to the SC for the re-examination of the decisions made so far.

Samsung in its statement said that they are interested in competing with Apple in the market, not in the courtroom.

But, they feel that the decision to appeal to the US Supreme court is significant for all the US companies.

Samsung has appealed that the jury is not giving any details on the point of how should the design-patent related cases be understood.

Apart from this, Samsung has also argued about how damages are being calculated in such cases.

Samsung in its statement said that the way the laws are being interpreted are not in line with the modern times.

And, if the current decision is followed than there will be a negative impact on users and the economy.

Another important part of this situation is that the big names like eBay, Google+ and Facebook have also shown support by filing a brief with the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The companies have raised the issue that if recent results are concluded as right; than there would be a devastating impact on economy of several companies.

The Supreme Court has yet not passed the statement if it would be accepting this case or not.

It is worth noting that the Supreme Court has not taken any design-patent related case since 1800s.
