A US court has awarded $1bn. in damages to Apple against its IP and patent case against Samsung. A big win for Apple, a setback for Samsung.
But what does this mean for ordinary man? Ordinary people have nothing to gain from IP and patent wards; it is played by MNCs to improve profits of one or more multinational companies. The companies are not fighting for the benefit of their customers; if they were, they would have shared the knowledge and given the ultimate benefit to iOS and Android fans alike.
