Tim Cook Sends A Memo To All Employees About The Apple Vs Samsung Trial

Today Apple won the Samsung Vs Apple trial and scooped up $1.05 Billion in damages from Samsung. Shortly after the win Apple's CEO Tim Cook sent a memo response to Apple corporate employees about the win. The statement released is based on Apple's PR Head Katie Cotton closing statements. He said:

Today was an important day for Apple and for innovators everywhere.

Many of you have been closely following the trial against Samsung in San Jose for the past few weeks. We chose legal action very reluctantly and only after repeatedly asking Samsung to stop copying our work. For us this lawsuit has always been about something much more important than patents or money. It’s about values. We value originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best products on earth. And we do this to delight our customers, not for competitors to flagrantly copy.

We owe a debt of gratitude to the jury who invested their time in listening to our story. We were thrilled to finally have the opportunity to tell it. The mountain of evidence presented during the trial showed that Samsung’s copying went far deeper than we knew.

The jury has now spoken. We applaud them for finding Samsung’s behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn’t right.
I am very proud of the work that each of you do.

Today, values have won and I hope the whole world listens.


To cut things short Tim Cook notes that he seemingly did not want to go trial with Samsung. He also said that these events only happened after Apple repeatedly asked Samsung to stop copying. He ends his email by saying how proud he is of the work each and every employee does and that "values have won"
