Samsung May Have to Pay Ongoing Royalties to Apple, if Future Samsung Products Infringe

This is the case in which the jury awarded Apple $119 million this past May.  Judge Koh's order states that, beginning after entry of final judgment (which apparently has now happened), "Apple is entitled to ongoing royalties for any continuing infringement, in lieu of a permanent injunction", which "shall apply to products adjudicated to infringe the '647, '172, or '273 Patents, and to products 'not more than colorably different therefrom.'"  Whether there are any such products (Samsung denies that there are any) will be determined, if necessary, in the future.  The amounts of the royalties are redacted.  Detailed coverage on FOSS Patents and the RecorderHere is the order.
