APPLE BRINGS DOWN THE GAVEL ON SAMSUNG

Apple and Samsung once again find themselves in a battlefield.

Apple has been filing complaints against Samsung on its handset design patent. The infringement has squeezed out around $548 million from Samsung during the last few months. Regardless, Apple is still not satisfied.

Only a week after the huge payday, they have claimed another sum worth $180 million for further infringements on the new iPhone handset designs. 

The papers submitted in the court show that, an approximate of $180 million is due in charge of damages and interest claiming that Samsung has violated the patent rights to their own handset designs in a minimum of five Samsung devices.

Bad news for Samsung came in 2012 when the court found Samsung liable in a patent related dispute. This battle in the techno arena began in 2011 when Apple had first sued Samsung claiming they had copied the design of an Apple product. After the 2012 verdict, Samsung was made liable $930 million to Apple.

None of the representatives from either company could be available for any clarification. 

But in an appeal made in May, a U.S appeals court reduced $382 million from the claimed amount by holding that Apple had fallen behind on proper trademarks protection. Eventually Samsung paid the reduced amount of $548.2 million in December.

Both these rival companies have a long battle ahead before cease-fire. Apple has initiated yet another suit claiming the deducted amount scheduled for March of next year. 

For more information you can look up the case of Apple Inc v. Samsung Electronics Co Ltd in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, No. 11-cv-1846.
