Apple seeks another $707 million in damages from Samsung

In addition to the $1.05 billion Apple was awarded by a jury for Samsung's patent infringement, Apple has asked the court for another $707 million in damages.

The request was revealed in a filing made late Friday by Apple and summarized by intellectual property expert Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents. With Apple's requested enhancements, supplemental damages and prejudgment interest, the company has asked the court for $1.756 billion from Samsung.

The additional $707,061,678 comes from an extra $135 million Apple seeks under the Patent Act, $400 million under the Lanham Act, $121 million in supplemental damages, and $50 million in prejudgment interest.

The filing means that a previous report out of Korea from last week, which claimed that Apple would seek an even larger sum from Samsung, was inaccurate. Mueller said that's because Apple recognizes only some parts of the $1.05 billion in damages it was awarded by a jury are subject to enhancement.

"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," Mueller wrote. "Apple is defending its intellectual property, and not just being greedy."

Samsung


The iPhone maker 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.

    It indicates that the potential triple damages for willful infringement only applies to part of the $1.05B, not the whole sum.

    Oh dear, made a bad career choice all those years ago.

    Should have applied to study law at Stanford rather than becoming an architect here in England!

    Ouch, Apple would you stop slamming Sammy. Now ur gonna go for triple the billion dollar damages too!

    Just stick to tripling in the marketplace instead. Like tripling the graphics speed of the S3 with the iPhone 5. Now hat's the kind of winning I want.

    When Android handset OEMs top the annual consumer satisfaction reports, then we can talk. 


     


    Oh wait . . . they won't. Because it's really not possible to do when you're running a whored-out OS that is supposed to run on the good, the bad, and the downright ugly.


     


    Horizontal business models always fail in the User Experience department. 


     


    Apple actually achieves greater performance with a lot less power. Why? Because iOS and iPhone come from under the same roof. That's what happens when you actually give a shit about what you put your logo on.

    The troll hole spits out yet another one.

    More lawsuits? Jesus Christ. Apple doesn't need the damn money and neither does Samsung.

    Uhm excuse me Professor.  I know I got caught copying test answers from the smart kid in class, but why don't you just tell the smart kid to just keep doing better on his test scores?  That way, he'll do much better and I will too?  See?  It's a win-win for everyone!  /s



    Buzz-of troll.

    It's not about the money. It's about sending a message.


     


    It's a shameful display. Being caught in one will either damage Samsung's honor or reveal that they don't care about honor, damaging it even more.

    So you chose a career that contributes to society, rather than destroys it?


     


    Good for you!
