CLEARLY BORED of doing minor updates to its product portfolio, Apple has chose to renew its patent spat with Samsung. Samsung disputed the amount and now the fight is over the amount that's due to the Cupertino company.
Without mentioning the Supreme Court's ruling explicitly, Samsung lawyer John Quinn emphasized the room the decision affords the company to argue damages should be based on the profits it made off the specific components that were found to infringe Apple patents - rather than the entire device.

Koh has forbidden that argument on the ground that Samsung didn't raise it in the previous trial or on appeal. Susan Kare, a GUI designer who was part of Apple's Macintosh design team and has since worked for Microsoft and IBM, will testify that the iPhone GUI can not be separated conceptually from the phone.

The third covers the graphical user interface showing the layout of apps on its homescreen. But she's blocked Apple's argument that the phones should be viewed from the perspective of a "designer of ordinary skill in the art", saying there's no basis for importing the "person of ordinary skill in the art" to the design context.
