  • Apple to Ask for Another $707 Million in Damages from Samsung in Court


    Apple recently asked the court for another $707 million in damages in addition to the $1.05 billion Apple was awarded by the jury for Samsung’s patent infringement. Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents recently summarized the request which was revealed in a filing. Apple has requested enhancements, supplemental damages from prejudgment interest with the company asking the court for a total of $1.756 billion from Samsung.

    Here, the additional $707,061,678 comes from an extra $135 million Apple seeks under the Patent Act, $400 million under the Lanham Act, $212 million to in supplemental damages, and $50 million in prejudgment interest. The filing means that a previous report from the folks over at Korea, claiming that Apple would seek an even larger sum from Samsung was inaccurate. Mueller said this is because Apple recognizes only some parts of the $1.05 billion in damages when it was awarded by a jury subject to enhancement. Mueller said the following about Apple:

    Apple is smart enough to know that asking for the moon without a legal basis wouldn't do any good, neither in the court of law nor in the court of public opinion. Apple is defending its intellectual property, and not just being greedy.
    The Cupertino California company has argued for the supplemental damages based on sales of Samsung devices between July 1 and the final resolution in court. The jury’s damages were for the period through June 30, 2012. Apple also believes that the payout should be increased because of Samsung’s conduct, including sanctions that were given to the company for litigation-related conduct. We’ll have to wait and see if Apple’s demands will be met in court.

      We are talking about mobile devices. Not sports gear. Nice try though.

      It is when your phone doesn't shatter into a million pieces the second you drop it.

      Better? I don't like calling one phone better than the other. The iPhone has its pros and cons, and the S3 has its pros and cons as well.

      Then I guess you would argue that cars should be made out of plastic??
