Samsung was found guilty of willfully infringing on Apple's patent relating to scrollback, one for multitouch gestures, one for zooming, a design patent and a patent related to icons. The Wall Street Journal reports in its liveblog that the jury also found Samsung guilty of inducing its subsidiaries to infringe on Apple's patents.
The jury said that Samsung did not infringe on Apple's patent for tablet design. It did uphold Apple's validity for all its patents, and Samsung's validity for all its patents.

The Samsung thing is a proxy hit on Android.
Samsung has asked that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban in the US be overturned and is demanding damages for lost sales from Apple, after the tablet was deemed not to infringe on any patents. Apple secured a preliminary injunction against the 10.1-inch Android tablet back in late June, with Judge Lucy Koh describing it as “virtually indistinguishable” from the iPad and iPad 2. The Apple vs. Samsung jury did not agree, however, ruling that the Tab 10.1 did not in fact overstep the mark on any of the Cupertino firm’s IP, potentially giving Samsung a chance to grab at least part of the $2.6m bond its rival posted to secure the sales block.
