Apple vs. Samsung

$40 billion

The Apple vs. Samsung patent war was extremely costly and exhausting for each side. The case between the two resulted in a settlement of $40 billion, to be more precise. Plus, it’s not the only battle the two have fought. Apple and Samsung filed over 50 lawsuits against each other in more than 20 countries.

However, the one we are about to expose is the most famous (expensive as well). The legal war started when Samsung started releasing its Android devices. Shortly after that, Apple chief executive called their product a “stolen” one.

“I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong. I’m going to destroy Android because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go to thermonuclear war on this.” —Steve Jobs to Walter Isaacson, March 2010.

Eventually, Apple was the winner of this battle.
