There has been a lot of speculation as to how a jury could have come up with such a one-sided verdict in as complicated and long a case as Apple vs. Samsung. I doubt anyone directly involved in the case would have predicted an outcome that looked remotely like this. But, I will leave speculation on that to others; instead I'd like to look at whether the verdict is good for us, and I think it is.
This case is far from over -- both sides have many more patents and lawyers to throw at each other -- but so far the result has been a plus for us.
Disclaimer: I know of no Harvard horse in this race and have not seen any university comment on the verdict, so the above is my own (positive) view.
