After a dramatic trial and only three days of deliberations by jurors, Apple has emerged victorious in its 1.05 billion dollar patent infringement suit against Samsung. Apple’s victory is a victory for every inventor and innovator. If Apple didn’t win, it would have been a huge blow to the notion of patent protection.

On the flip side, it can’t be denied that Samsung offers extraordinary, and in some cases technologically superior, alternatives to iDevices. There is a good chance that a judge will rule that Samsung has to stop selling some of these products, which will slow innovation and will ensure that consumers have fewer high-end devices to choose from until someone comes up with an innovative device that isn’t too similar to an iPhone or iPad.
