Apple, Samsung Fight Over Patent Damages

Apple attorneys on Wednesday said Samsung Electronics should pay $379 million for violating patents on the iPhone, while attorneys for Samsung say Apple deserves less than a quarter of the $380 million.

These statements were made on Wednesday during opening statements of a new trial between the two technology giants.

Last year, a court awarded Apple over $1 billion as a jury found that Samsung copied various iPhone features.

However, in March U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh ruled the previous jury had made some errors in its calculations impacting about $400 million of the verdict. She ordered a retrial of that portion of the original award.

In a San Jose, California federal court on Wednesday (U.S. District Court, Northern District of California - Apple Inc vs. Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, 11-1846.) Apple attorney Harold McElhinny said Samsung had sold about 10.7 million phones that infringe Apple's patents, generating $3.5 billion in revenue.

However, Samsung attorney William Price said the South Korean company should only have to pay $52 million, which is "not a trivial amount."
