Apple is looking for billions of dollars in damages from Samsung when a much important patent lawsuit between the companies goes in front of a California jury coming week.
All the Details relating to Apple’s claim were possessed in documents submitted overnight to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, where the trial is scheduled to start on Monday.
“Samsung has drawn billions of dollars in terms of profits and caused Apple to lose this big amount through its violation of Apple’s owned property,” Apple’s trial brief said.
Combining Samsung’s sales revenue of all mobile phones and tablet PCs that allegedly infringe on patents of Apple, $500 million in profits Apple presume lost because of the Samsung’s handsets and $25 million in royalty damages, Apple’s lawyers are going to ask the jury to award “all collected total of $2.525 billion dollars,” the filing said.
According to their trail brief, filed shortly after Apple’s submitted documents to the court, Samsung called the Apple request “an extension of its attempt to monopolize the marketplace.”
“Damages are just for compensation, not confer an absurd windfall at the expense of competitions and consumers at large scale,” it said.
