No end in sight for legal war between Samsung and Apple

The legal war between two smartphone giants Apple and Samsung that started in 2011 does not seem to be ending at least for now.

In a latest move, apple has asked the US Supreme Court to uphold a jury's award for damages in a long-running patent dispute with rival Samsung Electronics.

It may be recalled that Apple first launched a lawsuit against Samsung in 2011 alleging Samsung to have infringed on Apple's iPhone trademarks, trade dress, and utility and design patents. And the court awarded Samsung  $1 billion to be paid to Apple for Samsung's infringement on at least six Apple patents.

The award against Samsung was reduced i to $548 million in 2015. But now Apple is again with its challenge of the verdict and has asked to court to direct Samsung to pay the damages. And quite naturally Samsung would rebound once again.

And the battle will continue.....
