Although any potential sanctions against Samsung won’t be determined until the judge completes his investigation, the preliminary information suggests that Samsung is guilty of violating a protective order covering Apple’s confidential patent licensing agreements and that the Korea-based company unfairly used that information to gain a competitive advantage.
