Apple Seeks For More Money From Samsung, Sales Ban

It seems that $1.05 billion was not enough for Apple as is has asked for a court order for a permanent U.S. sales ban on Samsung products along with additional damages of $707 million.

Apple scored a legal victory over Samsung in late August when a U.S. jury found that the Korean firm had copied critical features of the iPhone and awarded the U.S. firm $1.05 billion in damages.

In a motion filed in Friday, Apple sought a further $400 million damage award for design infringement by Samsung; $135 million for willful infringement of its utility patents; $121 million in supplemental damages based on Samsung's product sales not covered in the jury's deliberation; and $50 million of prejudgment interest on damages through December 31.

Samsung, in a filing to the U.S. court, asked for a new trial to be held.

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" - obviously targetting Samsung's new Galaxy S 3 smartphone.

Apple's move seems to be a response to Samsung's plans to add the new iPhone 5 to the existing U.S. patent lawsuits.
