After awarding Apple $1.049 billion in damages for Samsung's infringements upon its patents, the jury has determined that no monetary damages are owed to Samsung for its counter-suit claims. During the course of the trial, Samsung claimed that Apple had violated five of its utility patents, specifically patents '516, '941, '711, '893, and '460. Apple's iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 2 (3G), and fourth-generation iPod touch, Samsung alleged, had infringed upon specific aspects of the otherwise overarching patents, which covered 3G communication standards, email transmission methodology, switching between photo and gallery modes, and background music playback functionality.
