Apple's Samsung Victory: What Do You Have to Gain?

Tickers in this article: AAPL

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Apple's(AAPL) victory in its patent battle with Samsung has been derided as "a loss for the American consumer" by the Korean tech company.

In a statement emailed to TheStreet, Samsung said the ruling will lead to fewer choices, less innovation and potentially higher prices. Apple, inevitably, has lauded the jury's decision.

Late on Friday, a jury in San Jose, Calif., awarded Apple $1.05 billion in the closely watched patent case, ruling that the Korean phone giant had "willfully" infringed a number of "valid" Apple iPhone patents.

The landmark case could have major implications on the technology landscape, bolstering Apple's confidence in the ongoing tech patent wars.

With the fallout from Apple's legal tussle with Samsung now becoming apparent, we want to find out what TheStreet's readers think about the jury's decision.
