Samsung have been ordered to pay Apple nearly $540m compensation after being found guilty by a Californian court of copying the Iphone.

The Korean smartphone manufacturer said it's considering appealing against the jury award.

The case began seven years ago. Apple had been seeking a billion dollars in damages - saying they wanted to defend the work and creativity of their employees.

Other targets of Apple litigation such as the chipmaker Qualcomm are believed to be using the case as a benchmark before deciding whether or not to settle out of court.
