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

Posted by: Jennifer Cefai (2 years, 7 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.
