Apple wants an additional $180 million from Samsung in patent infringement lawsuit
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push();
In early December, we heard that Samsung would finally be conceding to the decision handed down in its patent infringement lawsuit against Apple, paying the $548 million that it owed the tech giant. While Samsung is still searching every legal avenue of getting the money back, Apple is apparently not content just to get amount agreed on in the lawsuit – it wants more. In court papers filed just before Christmas, Apple submitted a claim that it wants an additional $180 million from Samsung in interested and additional damages.
This is probably payback for when Samsung managed to get its payment amount reduced by around $382 million in May this year, down from the original amount, $930 million, which was ruled on in 2012. And just so we’re reminded about the kinds of things that were part of this lawsuit, Samsung was charged with infringing on patents to do with the iPhone’s front face, bezel and app icons – seems like a whole lot of hullabaloo over nothing, but this lawsuit likely isn’t going away anytime soon.
