Apple sues Samsung for $1 billion in design patent violation

Apple sues Samsung for $1 billion in design patent violation

"Design is what ties it all together", Lee said in US Northern California District Court in San Jose, California. "But that's why it's critically important for us to step back in time".

Samsung's pre-iPhone devices had keypads and smaller screens, while later models are screen-focused with app icons and no keypad.

The original trial, back in 2012, awarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages, which was less than half of their ask of $2.75 billion.

Samsung had already been found to infringe on this particular patent lawsuit, CNET reports, so now both companies are arguing on the matter of how much should be paid for what. But the sum of damages Samsung must pay is yet to be agreed. But Apple's patents "do not cover the entire phone", Quinn said, adding that they are entitled only to the profits of the infringing components, and "not on anything that's inside the phone".

The legal dispute started in 2011 when Apple sued Samsung.

The conundrum for jurors: Are damages based on "the whole phone, kit and caboodle, or just the shell of the phone - into which Samsung put a bunch of stuff that's unrelated to the patent?"

The basic question for the jury is: Should Samsung have to pay damages on the whole device or just the components that were infringed? Samsung disputed the amount and now the fight is over the amount that's due to the Cupertino company.

Later Koh admonished Quinn saying what he did was tantamount to jury nullification. But the award was curbed by a retrial the following year, and the U.S. Supreme Court set aside a portion of the damages after ruling that they could reflect either individual components of a product or the entire product itself.

Under the USA patent law, infringement of a design patent can result in a plaintiff receiving total profits made through the product. The glass is easily separated from the phone and doesn't cost much, Samsung has argued.

The 289 statute in USA code stipulates that anyone found guilty of design patent infringement must relinquish all profits they derived from the infringing product. And they can only argue upon the amount that Samsung has to pay Apple. Koh has forbidden that argument on the ground that Samsung didn't raise it in the previous trial or on appeal.

Instead of releasing another flip phone or keyboard phone, Apple devised the iPhone, which revolutionized phone design and quickly took the market by storm.
