Apple And Samsung Release Official Statements About The Recent Verdict

Apple has just won the three week trial against Samsung for patent infringement and now both of them have released official statements. I think Samsung is taking this one a little hard…

Apple’s head of PR, Katie Cotton has issued this statement on the companies behalf:

We are grateful to the jury for their service and for investing the time to listen to our story and we were thrilled to be able to finally tell it. The mountain of evidence presented during the trail showed that Samsung’s copying went far deeper than even we knew. The lawsuits between Apple and Samsung were about much more than patents or money. They were about values. At Apple, we value originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best products on earth. We make these products to delight our customers, not for our competitors to flagrantly copy. We applaud the court for finding Samsung’s behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn’t right.

Wait until you hear what Samsung had to say. This comes via AllThingsD from Samsung’s PR firm:

Today’s verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer,” Samsung said in a statement. “It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices. It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies. Consumers have the right to choices, and they know what they are buying when they purchase Samsung products. This is not the final word in this case or in battles being waged in courts and tribunals around the world, some of which have already rejected many of Apple’s claims. Samsung will continue to innovate and offer choices for the consumer.

You’ve got to be kidding me!?! Did they just say “a loss for the American consumer?” That’s kind of a blow at us as American consumers I think… Whatever though, Samsung. In the end, the true innovators prevailed.

Wow. Classy, Samsung. Very Classy.
