Jury in Apple-Samsung Patent Case Gets Instructions

After three weeks of arguments, the jury in the high-stakes patent dispute between Apple and Samsung has finally been given its instructions on what, exactly, jurors should be deciding in the high-stakes case. A ruling for Apple could ban imports of certain Samsung products and force the Korean company to change its designs or pay licensing fees, while a ruling for Samsung could damage Apple’s reputation as an innovator and lead to more iPhone look-alike designs.
