So Apple won its case against Samsung … to me that was a predictable outcome. Yes, Apple had violated a few things too, but the overwhelming judgement was in Apple's favour.

Many online views are mixed, with a lot of onlookers citing how bad this is for the consumer… saying it may result in a lot less innovation as many companies (not just Samsung) have to be very careful not to infringe of existing patents.

Whilst this is true, the word "innovation" should not really be used in the same sentence as "copying", which Samsung blatantly did. It will not stifle innovation, instead it should force others to seek the appropriate licences to use existing technologies. If that means paying Apple for every device you sell, so be it, at least you are trading within the law.
