How many stories have we written in the Apple vs. Samsung category? This right here would be #3,958, friend, and it’s every bit as interesting as all the others i.e. MASSIVELY.
Under US patent law, an infringer might – in the worst case – find itself forking over its profits to the patent owner. Can you see where I’m going with this?
A filing from Apple gives an insight into Samsung’s US profits, as Team Cupertino breaks down a whopping $2.45 billion claim.
The figure covers a multitude of Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II (and their many variants).
Here’s how Apple sees things:
- Samsung Galaxy S (all variants) - $1.346 billion
- Sprint Epic 4G (Galaxy S) - $325 million
- Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S) - $202 million
- Samsung Galaxy S II - $642 million
For the Samsung Galaxy S II, Apple resents the Epic 4G Touch in particular. It claims that consumers often confuse it for an Apple device. For me, the giveaway is where it says "Samsung" above the display.
All in all, there are 28 accused products. Twenty-eight! You can read about ‘em all in great detail in this handy PDF.
