After a year of scorched-earth litigation, a jury has decided Samsung ripped off the innovative technology used by Apple to create its revolutionary iPhone and iPad.

The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple US$1.05 billion ($1.29 billion). An appeal is expected.

Apple filed its patent infringement lawsuit in April last year and demanded US$2.5 billion. Samsung fired back with its own lawsuit seeking US$399 million.

The jury rejected all Samsung's claims against Apple. Jurors also decided against some of Apple's claims. However, the jury found that several Samsung products illegally used such Apple creations as the "bounce-back" feature.

As part of its lawsuit, Apple also demanded that Samsung pull its most popular cellphones and computer tablets from the US market. A judge was expected to make that ruling at a later time.AP
