A Dutch court has become the latest party to try and resolve one of many ongoing battles between smartphone giants Apple and Samsung, by ordering Apple to pay damages to Samsung.

According to the court, one of Samsung’s patents which involved connection to the internet on tablet and phones’ had been infringed by rival, Apple. Currently, it is not known what figure the damages will be, but they are thought to be calculated taking into account Apple sales in the Netherlands.

According to the BBC, a Samsung spokesperson said: "Samsung welcomes the court's ruling, which reaffirmed Apple's free-riding of our technological innovation.

"In accordance with the ruling, we will seek adequate compensation for the damages Apple and its products have caused."
