Dutch court orders Apple to pay Samsung damages over patent infringement
London: A Netherlands court has ordered Apple to pay damages to rival Samsung for infringing a patent held by the Korean mobile maker.

The US-based tech giant was accused of infringing the patent related to the way phones and tablet PCs connect to the Internet.

The court did not specify any amount, but the damages will be calculated based on sales of Apple''s iPhone and iPad in the Netherlands, the BBC reports.

Samsung said in an emailed statement that it ‘welcomes the court''s ruling, which reaffirmed Apple''s free-riding of our technological innovation’.

“In accordance with the ruling, we will seek adequate compensation for the damages Apple and its products have caused,” the firm added.

Samsung had claimed that Apple had infringed four of its patents, but the Dutch court said that only one of those had been breached.

The two firms have been involved in dozens of patent cases and disputes relating to designs of their respective products.
