Apple demands $1 billion from Samsung for patent infringement

Apple and Samsung back in court over seven-year patent feud

Samsung will argue Apple is only entitled to profits for "selling something of that shape, and not for the profits for selling the functionality that goes inside the shape", Risch said.

It's been years since Samsung smartphones were found to have infringed several Apple iPhone patents, but some folks are still sore.

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.

The basic question for the jury is: Should Samsung have to pay damages on the whole device or just the components that were infringed? On the other hand, Samsung only wants to provide a mere $28 million in reimbursements. The whole thing is the phone.

Facebook launches voice posts, two other features from India
Currently, it is possible to save photos and videos taken on the Camera to a phone's camera roll, but not to a Facebook account. Facebook's Hayes on Wednesday said that large user base in India was posting Stories without video but were using their voice.

In 2012, a jury sided with Apple on its infringement claims and awarded the company $1.05 billion in damages. The Patent Act awards all profits from sales of any "article of manufacture" that infringes a patented design.

What is a design patent?

In December 2016, the Supreme Court decided that the case should return to court after ruling it was unfair on Samsung to take all its profits on $3.3 billion in sales. The glass is easily separated from the phone and doesn't cost much, Samsung has argued.

Neither Apple nor Samsung provided comment when asked. It was ordered to pay the USA tech giant more than $1 billion for infringing on three of Apple's design patents related to mobile devices - the quick links to phone numbers, the slide-to-unlock feature and the auto-correct function. 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.

That sum was reduced to about $400m after the first retrial and other legal efforts by the Galaxy smartphone-maker.

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.
