Apple Could Get More Than $1 Billion in Damages From Samsung With New Trial

While Judge Koh reduced the damages awarded to Apple in the company's first jury verdict, a new trial for those products could result in a potentially greater award, notes FOSS Patents.

Apple will still be able to demand far more than $450 million with respect to the 14 "vacated damages" products. If the new jury doesn't reevaluate liability, or if it does but arrives at a result materially consistent with the first jury's findings, and if the new jury adopts Apple's damages claims as the right number or alternatively decides to adopt a higher pecentage (than the first jury's 40%), then the total damages award could be substantially greater.

Samsung confirmed the possibility itself in a late-Friday filing, saying that "Apple can seek even more damages on these products in the new trial".

The second damages trial covers the Galaxy Prevail, Gem, Indulge, Infuse 4G, Galaxy SII AT&T, Captivate, Continuum, Droid Charge, Epic 4G, Exhibit 4G, Galaxy Tab, Nexus S 4G, Replenish, and Transform.

FOSS Patents is a troll. It has consistently been wrong about almost everything that it writes. It gets paid to write what it does, even though it claims that there is no connection between what it writes and who pays ... yeah, right. I can't believe that this websites keep listening to the PAID PR it writes as if it was coming from an impartial analyst.

THIS is a HUGE waste of time!! Apple sucks cok! Let's all just file lawsuits because of a shape of a phone or fuckking icons!! Let's waste government time by dealing with this stupid ass bullshit! Samsung ain't going ANYWHERE! Either is Apple! I hope all of Apple's processors from that crap company are garbage and require mass recalls! I am soooo salty cause Samsung actually made something that millions of people bought so we are taking our business elsewhere! Look at the lump in Tim Cook's throat and tell me if that ain't the tip of Samsung's dick bulging out??? Greedy bastards!!

After reading more background on this issue, it is so muddied, how can anyone in the general populous cast judgement on either side? I'll wait for the courts on this one. BTW, I bought a Samsung because it does exactly and I mean exactly what I want for a lot less money. I don't need all the bells and whistles that the iPad has. I also have a Galaxy Ace II and same thing. It does all I want very well without the exorbitant cost of an iPhone.

A rational comment. Good job. Agree completely with the concept of buying the product that fits your needs. Personally, I love my iPad. But that doesn't make it better than your Ace. To each his (or her) own.

Really! The nerve of Apple to be upset (and seek damages) because Samsung stole from them. Nobody else, at least on this board, would be upset over Samsung's criminal behavior.

They stole NOTHING! Icons? A shape? My god!! SOOOO criminal!
