The recent decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit added a new episode to the "Apple v. Samsung saga".

The amount of damages awarded plays a significant role in the light of the U.s. peculiar design patent provision. For this reason the Federal Circuit's decision provides a special case for an economic analysis of damages rules in intellectual property law.
