Samsung, Apple reach settlement over design dispute

Apple claimed that Samsung raised $1 billion by selling smartphones that infringed on its design-related rights.
Samsung, however, declined to comment.
Apple was originally asking for $2.5 billion in damages from the Galaxy S maker, and although the court heavily favoured the California-based company in its initial ruling, Samsung was only ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages instead.
Seven years after it began, Apple and Samsung have settled a high-stakes patent dispute that resulted in numerous appeals, and at one juncture, a trip to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In December 2016, the court sided unanimously with Samsung's argument that a patent violator does not have to hand over the entire profit it made from stolen designs if those designs covered only certain portions of a product but not the entire object.
The world's two biggest smartphone makers reached a truce in their seven-year-old court battle a month after a federal court jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple some Dollars 539 million for copying patented iPhone features.

"We believe deeply in the value of design, and our teams work tirelessly to create innovative products that delight our customers", Apple said in May. It is important that we continue to protect the hard work and innovation of so many people at APPLE. But the case has had a lasting impact on US patent law.
Apple originally pursued to obstruct Samsung phones from the market, but the technology at debate has for a long time obsolete, and the battle since then has predominantly about money.
Neither Samsung nor Apple clarified what the terms of the settlement were.
