Apple to pay damages to Samsung over infringed patents

A Dutch court has ordered Apple to pay damages to Samsung Electronics.

The court said that Apple has infringed on a Samsung patent relating to the way smartphones and tablets connect to the web.

"Samsung welcomes the court’s ruling, which reaffirmed Apple’s free-riding of our technological innovation," Samsung told the BBC.

Apple has faced numerous legal issues over the past year, and was recently fined £1.5 million in Australia over the iPad’s 4G capabilities.

The amount that Apple will have to pay Samsung has not yet been specified.
