    This battle will never end, unless someone wins. Recently, a judge says that Samsung should post a bond equal to 88 percent of the value of smartphones found to infringe Apple Inc. patents if it loses a U.S. trade ruling and wants to keep selling the devices.

    i dont know why Apple's vote is much higher than samsung knowing the fact that Samsung has overtaken Apple in smartphones. Samsung now ships over 50 million smartphones per quarter and its profit are even way too high than google's.

    Samsung has said it will no longer seek an injunction against sales of Apple?s devices in Europe, as US and European authorities press the smartphone industry to rein in their patent disputes.

    The battle continues. "Since the August verdict, the two companies have continued to escalate a separate lawsuit against one another, set to go to trial in 2014. That spat includes more recent devices on both sides, including Apple's iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, and Samsung's Galaxy S3 and S3 Mini."
