Apple wants to get Samsung's $ 180 million for patent infringement. The company from Cupertino said they were damaged selling five devices Samsung, which have been available in stores since the judgment of 2012, which was found guilty of Samsung's patent infringement manufacturer iPhone.
At the moment, legal documents are not accessible to a wide range, and there is no information on specific models of Samsung claimed in the lawsuit.
Previously, Samsung filed a Supreme Court appeal against the decision to pay 548 million US dollars for the violation of Apple's patents appointed by the court in mid-December. This appeal is the last chance to avoid a penalty.
Samsung's lawyers believe that the courts misinterpreted the law on patents and ruled in favor of Apple. And if the decision is not changed, then the precedent of a negative impact on the development of innovation, healthy competition will slow and will pave the way for the patent troll in design that in the future not the best way affect the economy and consumers.
It is worth noting that the first Samsung agreed to pay a specified sum, reserving the right to file counterclaims and to claim compensation from Apple, provided that the company will find evidence of his innocence.
Recall that the patent war between Apple and Samsung began in 2011, when the company Tim Cook has accused a rival of copying the technology and the design of the smartphone iPhone.
