The war between Apple and Samsung on the patent front seems to be never ending, and it’s about to get worse. Cupertino-based Apple filed a motion late Friday afternoon against South Korean-based Samsung, asking for another $707 million in damages, on-top of the $1.05 billion it was awarded in late August. Apple says it wants “$400 million damage award for design infringement by Samsung; $135 million for willful infringement of its utility patents; $121 million in supplemental damages based on Samsung’s product sales not covered in the jury’s deliberation; and $50 million of prejudgment interest on damages through December 31,” reports Reuters.
Not going to give-up without a fight, Samsung has asked for a separate trial, where if found guilty could not only face damages, but key devices like the Galaxy S III taken off the market per Apple’s request. The last U.S. trial focused on older Samsung devices like the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab 10.1, but Samsung’s newer devices look to be moving in focus this time around. Looks like we’ll be doing this all over again.
