Samsung: Apple's 'icon layout' patent isn't worth $539 million, cue the retrial22
Samsung's premise is that Apple's icons layout patent applies only to the interface and the screen, not the entire phone, so it shouldn't be asked to pay damages for the whole of handsets it shipped with such UI arrangements, just the relevant part. Apple's case rests on exhibits like the one you see above, from the Relative Evaluation Report submitted to the court then, arguing that Samsung changed both its hardware and software design significantly after the OG iPhone was introduced.
In addition, Samsung asks that Apple returns to it $145 million that it paid in 2012 over a touchscreen patent, with interest, as the patent in question seems to have been invalidated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office already. A jump from $539 million to $28 million seems like a long stretch, but whatever Samsung manages to shave off the top end in a potential retrial, will be a welcome reduction anyway.
