Apple wants to squeeze another $707 million from Samsung

Apple wants to squeeze another $707 million from Samsung
While rumors circulated last week that Apple was going to ask Judge Lucy Koh to triple the $1.05 billion in damages that a jury awarded Apple from Samsung, the actual additional amount that Apple has filed for turns out to be $707 million. The additional money covers enhancements, supplemental damages and prejudgment interest and brings the total amount of the award to $1.756 billion. Additional awards could take the amount to $1.91 billion or more.

Apple expects part of the extra $707 million to cover Samsung's conduct during the trial in which the Korean manufacturer had been sanctioned several times by Judge Koh for "litigation-related" conduct. Some of the additional funds covers sales made by Samsung of the devices that were found by the jury to infringe on Apple's patents, between July 1st and when the final ruling is made in the courtroom. And  the total could go higher if any of Apple's Rule 50 post-verdict motion results in the judge finding additional liability on Samsung's part.

The filing also requests a permanent injunction be placed on a large number of Samsung devices. The list includes the Samsung Captivate, Samsung Continuum, Samsung Droid Charge, Samsung Epic 4G, Samsung Exhibit 4G, Samsung Fascinate, Samsung Galaxy Ace, Samsung Galaxy Prevail, Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S 4G, Samsung Galaxy S II (AT&T), Samsung Galaxy S II (i9000), Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 (Wi-fi), Samsung Gem, Samsung Indulge, Samsung Infuse, Samsung Mesmerize, Samsung Nexus S 4G, Samsung Replenish, Samsung Vibrant, Samsung Galaxy S II (T-Mobile), Samsung Transform, Samsung Galaxy S Showcase, Samsung Galaxy S II (Epic 4G Touch), and the Samsung Galaxy S II (Skyrocket)".

Even more potentially scary to Samsung, Apple has asked for a injunction that would cover "any other product with a feature or features not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products". In other words, Apple is gunning for the Samsung Galaxy S III, perhaps the one device in Sammy's arsenal that gives Tim Cook sleepless nights.

Samsung must stop supplying all components to Apple now. Rotten Apple is destroying Samsung.

If Sammy stopped meeting its supply contracts to Apple, Apple would end up owning Sammy after the damages were totaled up.

Samsung itself still sell millions and millions of chips to other manufacturing, not just processor but DRAM, etc.. It'll spoil their reputation, think.. they may all ditch Samsung if Samsung does this.

Personally, I doubt Apple is going to get their future-facing injunction. Talk about a blank check.... Judges don't like to give open-ended orders, and that would be the definition of open-ended. Damages-wise, Sammy hasn't paid Apple a dime, and I suspect they still won't. Expect the Appeals Court to stay everything pending appeal.

They invented the gorgeous display? Wow you realize that.display is an LCD display right? Not a super hd LCD display.. an LCD LCD displays were around long before apple slapped the retina display name on it....and remember that the palm was the first to really have email clients on the go...oh yeah apple invented apple just brought it all together 7 years ago!!! Ford created.the car still consider them the best car maker in the world ? It's the course of advancement...I'm a fan of all 3 OS'S BUT apple's stale ios has kept me away since the 3gs... Have the Nokia 900 and HTC one x and while the iPhone 5 is a nice looking device I'll take my 4.7 inch super LCD hd screen and flash support for.the web...while ios does a great and fast job of web viewing, strip flash off android and it blows it out of the's not a opinion it's a fact that because of apple's lack of leadership the beasts of the android world HTC and Samsung will continue to.make strides in technology...sure they copied apple so what siri is a copy of Vlingo that was already.on andriod and they knew so much they paid them a large sum of money to own it...innovating right? Oh wait the notification pull down was apple's invention right? Nope andriods....oh wait that little effect on the lock screen bouncing up and down for nice visuals ? Hmmm windows phone...oh yeah their search through siri? Oh yeah google who makes andriod hmmmm... Oh yeah their maps oh wait they used google...not Anymore and look what happene...look I like apple products but they clearly have not leaped past andriod and when win phone 8 comes out on the.lumina 920 your really gonna see what innovation looks like

The gorgeous retina display in iphone 4 was made by LG. But if 300 + ppi in a mobile display means retina, then iphone 4 was not the first phone with retina display, infact sharp pv 360 (sidekick lx 2009), samsung jet, lg arena, lg viewty smart and lg crystal had 300 + ppi even before iphone 4 was announced. Capacitive touchscreens date back to 1972. You can find more about it here :-

Samsung makes some of the best displays... (both for TV's and for smart phones...) Wonder what would happen if Samsung stopped selling Apple their retina displays? (read somewhere that they were the sole supplier for the 9.7" Ipad display...)

Copying is better than STEALING which Apple does and then shamelesly calls it their own iNNOVATION.

Apple makes good products, and millions buy them. Same with Google and Android OEM's, including Samsung. Can't everyone leave each other alone and get along? I swear, anyone who wants this to continue has the intelligence of a kindergartener with a sippy cup full of Jagermeister.

Apple copies SONY. Steve Jobs use to worship SONY!!!!! Look at the Z series Labtop. only for celebs and Entrapaners and highflyers, even the design and layout was Xeroxed....

Wow guys, really? Downvoted for saying Apple makes good products? They do. They have excellent integration between products, a good media store, and operating systems for those who don't really want to do much heavy lifting. I am an Android fan, but stop hating so much. Jeez. It's easier NOT to hate on everything.

Finally, a voice of reason. I don't want to use them, but Apple makes good products. They're a vile, greedy corporation, but their devices are well made.
