Hexus reports neither Samsung nor Apple is satisfied with the $1 billion verdict. Samsung is obviously unhappy because it lost the case and wants a completely new trial to be held, while Apple is unsatisfied because it wants an additional $707 million in damages.
In a motion filed late Friday, Apple sought a further $400 million for design infringement, $135 million for utility patent infringement, $121 million in supplemental damages for the time period between the filing of charges and the verdict, during which Samsung continued to sell infringing product in the US, and $50 million in interest charges.
A Reuters news report suggests that Apple also wants the sales ban to extend to include the best-selling Samsung Galaxy S III. Apple’s phrasing “any of the infringing products or any other product with a feature or features not more than colourably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing products,” is sufficiently vague to include it, says the news agency.
Samsung filed papers early on Saturday asking “...the Court grant a new trial enabling adequate time and even-handed treatment of the parties.” The company states that the trial was unfair due to its “constraints on trial time, witnesses and exhibits” not letting the company defend itself fully. Samsung also complained about the patent law seemingly giving Apple a monopoly over designs utilising rectangles with rounded corners.
