An Apple a day keeps Samsung away

Apple has filed a motion seeking an additional US$707m worth of damages from Samsung over alleged design infringements.

Fresh from winning over $1bn damages from their rival last month, the world's most valuable company is going after the South Korean firm once again, also requesting a court order for a permanent U.S. sales ban on all Samsung products in breach of copyright laws.

Apple wants the injunction to cover “any of the infringing products or any other product with a feature or features not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products."

A Californian jury found Samsung guilty of ‘willful’ violations of a range of Apple patents but as the company seeks to exploit the verdict further, Samsung retaliated by asking for a new trial in a U.S. court, saying:

"“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.”

Do you think Apple are right to pursue the case further? Tell us your thoughts below.
