In a massive victory in its patent case against Samsung, technology giant Apple has won more than USD 1 billion after a jury in California found that the South Korean firm violated a series of Apple's patents related to the software and design of mobile devices. The nine jurors in the case reached a verdict after answering more than 700 questions in a verdict form over three days of deliberations in a San Jose court in California.
