Samsung: 'A loss for the American consumer'

Today’s verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices. It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies. Consumers have the right to choices, and they know what they are buying when they purchase Samsung products. This is not the final word in this case or in battles being waged in courts and tribunals around the world, some of which have already rejected many of Apple’s claims. Samsung will continue to innovate and offer choices for the consumer.

Siri, define 'innovate'

I have a rather long rant about this but its not really constructive. I will just mention one thing. Samsung is a South Korean owned company that is saying that if they won the trial it would be a win for the American consumer. It probably wouldn't have been for American business, employment or patent protection.
