After years of court battles, Apple finally won over Samsung with a $120 million claim for use of the Slide to Unlock patent.

Samsung has breached two Apple patents, one of which is related to the so-called quick links, which are phone numbers that are stored and become a link (can be pressed).

Naturally Samsung is not satisfied with the result. “Our 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,” a Samsung spokesman said in a statement.

The company also said the decision would allow Apple to get “unfair profits” from an invalid patent. This is not the end of Apple and court battles with Samsung, however. This is only the end of a case.

The design patent dispute — wherein Apple claimed that Samsung copied the design of the iPhone — is set to go back to court in May 2018, with Samsung able to whittle the damages to $400 million from an initial $930 million. We’ll have that to look forward to next year.
