In a motion filed late on Friday, it asked for just a fraction of that: a cool $707 million.
On top of those damages, Apple is looking for a permanent sales ban on offending Samsung products.
That’s the good word according to Reuters, which breaks down the $707 million as follows:
- $400 million – design infringement
- $135 million – willful patent infringement
- $121 million – further damages not considered by the jury previously
- $50 million – pre-judgement interest
Apple says it 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."
Samsung, meanwhile, is asking for a brand new trial. It argues: "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."
The South Koreans add: "It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies.”
