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

Open up the calendar app on a Galaxy Note or S3, notice the cruddy fake leather which is somehow even worse than Apple's cruddy fake leather, and note...

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.*
Your example has nothing to do with the patents in this case.

And yes, Apple is stifling innovation.
someone sounds like a bitter apple user. everything apple has done has been stolen or should i say "borrowed" from other companies. apple never did anythign themselves. from computers to mp3 players. if your biggest defense that apple is the one "crea...

Apple is seriously pushing it to the limit, funny how their greed increased and are now asking for yet more money from Samsung around the same time of the release of the craphone5.
Apple has settled comfortably into the 'evil empire' position that was previously occupied by Microsoft....but it won't help....as the New York Time argues....Apple has peaked....

Samsung is winning everywhere else...

Samsung did nothing wrong. This is all about an american jury siding with an american company. The case has been lost by Apple in 4 other countries. The day a company can win a case over things like rectangles with rounded corners is the day innovation stops.

No, Samsung copied Apple's trade dress, design elements.... and UI conventions.... and iconography, all of which Apple had trademarked or patented.
