Abstract

Mark McKenna was quoted in the USA Today article Apple-Samsung legal outcome won't likely end feud on May 5.

For its part, Apple "clearly thought it would get more out of its patents," says University of Notre Dame law professor Mark McKenna, who specializes in intellectual property, trademark, patent and copyright law.

And Samsung "fared much better than they might have, if you think what they potentially were on the hook for," he says. "But it's hard to call anyone a winner who has to spend the kind of money they spent litigating a case and then get ordered to pay $120 million in damages."

What Samsung may have succeeded at is convincing, this jury at least, that "Apple's beef here really is with Google," McKenna says. "I think they really feel like they have advanced the ball a little bit there."
