Latest Apple vs Samsung U.S. trial set to start; Google in background

  • Jury selection is due to start today in the second major U.S. court fight in the Apple (AAPL) vs Samsung (SSNLF) global patent battle.
  • Apple is suing the South Korean company for $2B for the alleged violation of five patents, while Samsung has argued that Apple has breached two of its patents.
  • Apple's other target is Google (GOOG), with some of Samsung's alleged IP breaches involving Android features such as the ability to dial a phone number written inside a text message.
  • As she did in a previous trial between Apple and Samsung, Judge Lucy Koh is set to preside. In the latest encounter, Koh has already ruled that Samsung infringed an Apple patent that automatically corrects words while a person is typing.

    Did Samsung paid Apple for the $1B it owed from the last trial? I know judge has approved it for payment.
