The Californian jury found that Samsung copied key features of the iPhone and iPad, making a ban on the company's key products a possibility. Samsung is already feeling the repurcussions of the decision, with shares falling 7 percent today, the equivalent of a 12 billion USD loss on its market value.

Apple plans to file for a sales injunction on September 20, whereas Samsung will continue to fight the charges according to an internal company memo, reported Reuters.
