Apple vs Samsung: iPhone maker demanding $40 fine per smartphone

Posted by: Jennifer Cefai (2 years, 11 months ago)

Another Apple vs Samsung showdown is imminent, and Apple are planning to throw another punch. Newly revealed documents have shown that the iPhone maker is seeking a patent royalty rate that would allow it to collect billion-dollar sums from Samsung every year - over just five patents, which include Apple's phone tapping number feature, unified search, data synchronization, slide-to-unlock, and autocomplete. Following U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh's ratification of Apple's expert report at the expense of Samsung's on February 25, the final decision will go to the Jury - including Apple's $40-per-phone demand. 10 per cent of the amount of phones Samsung sold last year would mean $1.28 billion for Apple, based on that demand. The case continues.
