Apple scooped a major victory against Samsung when a Californian court awarded it $1 billion in damages after finding Samsung guilty of infringing numerous patents. The verdict was a huge blow to Samsung. Now, both companies have stated that they are utterly unsatisfied with the verdict and would pursue further legal action against each other.


Patent wars

The reason for Apple’s dissatisfaction is simple: the company is looking for a far huge sum than a mere $1 billion. It is looking to add possibly $707 million further to the damages it will receive.

So in the new papers filed by Apple’s lawyers, they have argued that Samsung profited immensely by copying Apple’s designs and thus, it should be made to pay a greater sum in damages. The filing read, “Samsung made a calculated business decision to copy the industrial designs, graphical user interfaces, and touchscreen navigation technology of the iPhone and iPad.”

The lawyer further wrote, “Samsung has reaped extraordinary rewards from its wrongful sale of iPhone and iPad clones by taking market share, revenues, and profits from Apple.”

Samsung, on the other hand, is seeking to have the verdict amended in its favor. Its lawyers have called the $1 billion verdict as utterly unreasonable and unsupported by evidence. The verdict has also triggered a debate as to whether or not Apple is trying to create a monopoly in the smartphone and tablet market.

According to the documents filed by Samsung’s lawyer, “The Court’s constraints on trial time, witnesses and exhibits were unprecedented for a patent case of this complexity and magnitude, and prevented Samsung from presenting a full and fair case in response to Apple’s many claims.”

Both companies are now seeking further legal action, presumably the overturning of earlier verdict and the issuance of new verdict. The only difference is that each company wants the new verdict to be in its favor.
