Supreme Court to End Samsung, Apple Patent Brawl


The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear an appeal from Samsung regarding its patent dispute with Apple. The case stems from a 2011 lawsuit by Apple that alleged Samsung copied certain design elements and features from the iPhone and iPad and used them in Samsung Galaxy phones and tablet computers. A jury in 2012 awarded $1 billion to Apple, finding that Samsung had used some of Apple’s tap-to-zoom technology. The award was later reduced. The companies reached a partial agreement in December.
