Apple has asked for a court ruling for a permanent US sales ban on Samsung products claimed to violate its patents along with more damages of $707 million on top of the billion-dollar judgment won by the iPhone maker a few weeks ago.
The globe’s leading 2 smartphone producers are locked in patent fights in 10 states as they vie for top place in the lucrative, fast-growing market. Apple won a lawful victory over Samsung in late August when a Everyone court found that Samsung had copied vital functions of the iPhone and awarded the US company $1.05 billion in damages.
In a motion registered late on Friday US time, Apple sought an additional $400 million damage award for design violation by Samsung; $135 million for willful violation of its utility patents; $121 million in additional damages based on Samsung’s sales not covered in the jury’s deliberation; and $50 million of prejudgment interest on damages through Dec 31.
The demands together come to $707 million.
