Reader C, who’s a patent attorney, sends a link to a slideshow of the jury instructions, and a couple of comments, including this one that’s on the money:
The model by Model analysis virtually guarantees that a few months from now, Samsung will have new “redesigned” models and will claim that a new trial is necessary to determine infringement on the new models and they may well get a new trial. The new model gambit is often used these days in the patent litigation wars even when you don’t have the bizarre model determination.
Apple just filed its list of devices to ban, and they’re all old phones. Samsung’s flagship device, the Galaxy S III, is not on the list. Nor is the Galaxy Nexus, which Samsung builds for Google.
While we’re on the topic of the Nexus line of products, this is an interesting discussion from one of the readers at the Verge that details just how carefully Google has worked to design phones that don’t infringe on Apple’s patents.
