Apple Seeks More Damage Money And Sales Bans Against Samsung

The $1 billion award from Samsung was not enough for Apple. Apple has filed for a couple of million more in damages against Samsung along with the ban of several devices. Details on Apple’s court motion can be found below.

After winning more than $1 billion in damages from Samsung last month, Apple is going after the Korean electronics giant once again.

The Cupertino company filed a motion Friday that seeks additional damages of $535 million, plus $172 million in supplemental damages, on top of its previous award — for a total of $707 million. It has also requested a court order for a permanent U.S. sales ban on Samsung Electronics products that allegedly violate its patents, Reuters reports.

Apple wants the injunction to cover “any of the infringing products or any other product with a feature or features not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products,” according to the filing.

Samsung responded in a U.S. court filing by asking for a new trial, Reuters says.

“The Court’s constraints on trial time, witnesses and exhibits were unprecedented for a patent case of this complexity and magnitude, and prevented Samsung from presenting a full and fair case in response to Apple’s many claims.”

Apple accused the Galaxy maker of patent infringement in a highly-publicized court battle. A jury found Samsung devices infringed upon multiple patented features, including double-tap zoom, pinch-to-zoom and the design and iconography on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches.

“In the first six months of 2012 alone, Samsung received over 1.5 billion dollars in revenue from the 26 products that the jury found and/or diluted Apple’s patents and trade dresses,” the filing says, adding that the Korean firm made a “calculated business decision to copy.”
