Apple claimed that Samsung had infringed on its patent by copying the feature in their Galaxy S lineup of phones. Since then, Samsung has filed multiple appeals against the judgment and briefly succeeded in getting the decision overturned before it was later reinstated. It is also worth noting that out of the three patents, the patent for "quick-links" feature, which turned phone numbers and addresses into clickable links, accounted for more than 80% of total damages, which is almost $100m.
Samsung said in a statement its argument was supported "by many who believed that the court should hear the case to reinstate fair standards that promote innovation and prevent abuse of the patent system". This latest ruling is just one of the many cases that Apple and Samsung are fighting out.
The company also said that even though one of the patent's involved in the case has been invalidated by the courts, "today's decision allows Apple to unjustly profit from this patent, stunts innovation and places competition in the courtroom rather than the marketplace". It's done better here than in its other patent battle concerning the design of the iPhone.
