Apple seeks $1bn from Samsung after patent infringement dispute

Apple Fans Await iPhone 7

After Samsung agreed to pay some damages, the case went to the US Supreme Court in 2016 and was returned to Koh with an order to revisit a $399 million portion of damages.

The fourth episode of this case revolves around clarifying the definition of 'article of manufacture', that is whether the contents of the patents apply to the whole phone.

The legal dispute started in 2011 when Apple sued Samsung.

Under the U.S. patent law, infringement of a design patent can result in a plaintiff receiving total profits made through the product.

It's been going on for years, the ongoing battle between Samsung and Apple is back in a US Court and the two component buddies, are at each other's throat.

Instead of releasing another flip phone or keyboard phone, Apple devised the iPhone, which revolutionized phone design and quickly took the market by storm.

It's not like that Apple has accused Samsung of copying, Samsung has also accused Apple of copying its designing features.

A plan patent is a 25-year enrolled imposing business model right, which portrays another, unique and decorative outline for a made question. Already, Apple won one major patent against Samsung which was an infringement case.

While the design patents are the main event, the jury will also award damages for Samsung's infringement of two utility patents related to manipulating documents on a touch screen.

During the earlier trial, Apple lawyer Seth Waxman argued that the design patent referred to "the thing to which the design is applied", meaning the entire smartphone.

Committee approves Trump's Central Intelligence Agency director nominee, setting up full Senate vote
McCain's warning resonated with several critics of the president, including his fellow Arizona Republican Sen. Haspel said in her confirmation hearing that she would disobey any order from Trump to revive such techniques.

That figure, according to Samsung, comes to $28 million.

In regards to iPhone in particular, he said that Apple put itself on the line with the device. Samsung is now urging the jury to minimize the demanded damage recovery sum as much as possible.

In its latest trial, Apple has the burden of proof to prove that Samsung should pay the full $1 billion in damages.

Instead, the judges unanimously decided that an award could be based exclusively on the value of the components involved. Samsung's lawyer John Quinn said in court that Apple is seeking profits on the entire phone and that the company's patents are "narrow", reiterating that the award should be limited to the specific components of those devices that were found to infringe on Apple's patents. Though the final verdict hasn't come up yet, we need to see what happens in the end.
