Apple Asks For $707M More in Damages from Samsung
Apple has requested that Samsung pay it an additional $707 million in damages above the $1 billion already awarded to Apple over violated patents. Both Apple and Samsung submitted motions regarding the case this week. Apple said it arrived at this new amount by calculating how Samsung's early infringements led to successes with subsequent devices (variants of the Galaxy S and S II). U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh has the authority to triple the damages awarded by the jury. Further, Apple requested that a total of 26 Samsung devices be banned for sale in the U.S., even though many are no longer available. At the same time, Samsung filed a motion requesting that the $1 billion penalty be reduced to just $35 million. It believes the jury miscalculated the damages associated with the patent violations. Samsung also believes that the jury's decisions concerning Apple's patents were "unreasonable." Last, Samsung asked that the entire decision be vacated. It argues that the time constraints placed on the trial by Judge Koh severely curtailed its ability to plead its case.
For anyone siding with Samsung
1) It was deliberately styled to resemble Apple's fake leather calendar on the iPad and MacOS.
2) The stock Android calendar is much more beautiful than either.
3) Even Apple's ugly fake leather calendar is more attractive than the Samsung knockoff.
4) Samsung's ugly fake leather calendar is less functional than the stock Android Calendar
Now ask yourself-
Is Apple really stifling innovation with these lawsuits, or simply stifling a bunch of morons so lazy with their design and execution that they aren't even tasteful as to what they *copy.*
And yes, Apple is stifling innovation.
One of many news items that show how easy overturning this "Win" for Apple is going to be. Jury Misconduct is big big big.
Everyone knows Apple is...
