Apple won a pretty big pay day when a jury decided in the company’s favor in a case against Samsung, but that pay day might not be coming any time soon. Samsung isn’t expected to pay out the billion dollar sum any time soon given an extended court schedule, and Apple is perfectly content with waiting until next year to collect. Apple likely won’t be able to demand payment from Samsung until at least two weeks after post-trial motions that will begin on December 6th.

The reason Apple isn’t all the miffed over playing the waiting game is their ability to withhold payment for certain Samsung components used in the production of their iPhone and iPad, which should balance out some of what the cupertino-based company is due.
