Apple v/s Samsung legal battle continues...

The most infamous technology legal battle of the recent times was the Apple v/s Samsung one. Apple scored a huge initial victory where Samsung was found to be guilty of encroaching some of the Apple patents related to the iPhone and was fined more than a billion USD. This was a big blow to Samsung and a great victory to Apple. But many who knew the working of the US legal system cautioned about the possibility of retrials and appeals and how this fine of more than a billion dollars could come down significantly in the end. And so it did, multiple times and now for one more time where Samsung was let off, not required to pay the current reduced fine of around 330 million USD by the Supreme court(via 9to5mac).

The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Samsung over Apple in the latest chapter of the years-long dispute over iPhone design patents.

Of course this is not the end as Apple responded to this saying this doesn't mean that Samsung is not guilty and only that the amount might be revised (again via TechCrunch). Oh and wait Samsung again responded to these comments by Apple with their own retort saying how the Supreme court verdict is a win for everyone who is for innovation and creativity or something along those lines (mentioned in the same TechCrunch article cited above).

The question before the Supreme Court was how to calculate the amount Samsung should pay for their copying. Our case has always been about Samsung’s blatant copying of our ideas, and that was never in dispute. We will continue to protect the years of hard work that has made iPhone the world’s most innovative and beloved product. We remain optimistic that the lower courts will again send a powerful signal that stealing isn’t right.

But again in the end I don't think I am alone in thinking that (1) this case is totally stale and irrelevant by now and no one cares about the money involved but at the same time (2) it was a big moral victory for Apple, at least at the time of initial verdict which was totally in its favor.
