Apple Seeks Additional $700 Million in Damages From Samsung

Posted by · 9906 views · Translate
Apple is asking for a permanent U.S. sales ban on Samsung devices and an additional $707 million on top of the billion dollar verdict won last month, reports Reuters.

Apple wants an injunction to cover "any of the infringing products or any other product with a feature or features not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products."

In a motion filed late Friday U.S. time, Apple sought a further $400 million damage award for design infringement by Samsung; $135 million for willful infringement of its utility patents; $121 million in supplemental damages based on Samsung's product sales not covered in the jury's deliberation; and $50 million of prejudgment interest on damages through December 31. The requests together come to $707 million.

Samsung has asked for a new trial.

Curtix got it right. apple fked up and they know it so they gotta halt all the promotions going on with the android phones that are combating the iphone 5 launch. quit hyping up apple like a pair of jordans... it's nothing special.

Go Apple! Though, after winning the trail, please lower your iDevice product prices! Or otherwise provide to some poor countries for educational purposes. That could create a nice picture of Apple Inc.

This is getting ridiculous though. I'm sure any apple fan boy would agree.

whats ridiculas is you calling people "Apple Fanboys", people who may like apple like it because it suits their needs and are happy with the service they receive from apple..

Apple doesn't need or want $700m from Samsung. I think it's plainly obvious that Apple has been consistently loosing ground to Samsung and Android and this is a move to try to use the law to push Samsung out of the American market. Apple is threatened by Samsung and rightfully so. I am a iPhone owner/user and I own a large cell phone repair business in North America and I have no problems saying that in as many ways that Apple makes a superior product, Samsung does too. Consumers would sooner take a Beamer on the autobahn then a Ferrari in a playground zone. What good is "the best iPhone yet" of it's running the same old Nerfed iOS? To sum it all up... Investing in apple today would be akin to financial suicide.
