The Super Bowl of patent litigation battles is finally over, sports fans, and the victory goes to Apple over Samsung this time around.

That's right, put another one in the win column for the Cupertino crusher -- the details are unrolling right now on CNET's Live Blog, but it looks as though the jury has found that Samsung infringed on some of Apple's patents and diluted the iPhone's trade dress, for starters.

Translation: Apple has won on almost all patent claims read so far, and the Korean company is being ordered to pay up billions in damages.

Now that the match of the century is over (at least until appeals begin), the question is: did you win or lose a bet on this verdict? Is it what you were expecting? Vote in our poll and elaborate in the comments.
