Poll: Apple v. Samsung – did the jury make the right call?

In a recent BGR poll, tens of thousands of readers made their voices heard when we asked if you thought Samsung (005930) ripped off Apple’s (AAPL) designs. The majority, 49%, thought that Samsung’s devices didn’t make use of Apple’s protected IP. About 9% were unsure if Samsung was guilty but the remaining 42% thought Apple’s patented designs had been stolen — and unfortunately for Samsung, the jury agreed. Samsung was slapped with $1.05 billion in damages on Friday when the jury found that 21 of Samsung’s smartphones and tablets infringed on various Apple patents. As Samsung gets set to appeal the ruling, we want to hear from you. Was justice served last week or did the jury miss big when it decided that Samsung stole Apple’s protected IP? Cast your vote in the poll above.
