Apple Denied Higher Damages in Samsung Patent Case
A court this week denied Apple's request for increased damages in its patent case against Samsung. Apple argued that Samsung's patent infringement was willful and that the original $1 billion damages awarded by the jury wasn't sufficient compensation for losses from Samsung's infringement. U.S. Federal Judge Lucy Koh disagreed, letting the $1 billion damages stand. However, she has yet to rule on Samsung's request that the damages be lowered.
It's almost as if Apple's monomanical fixation with Samsung is starting to hurt their bottom line.
