iPhone maker also wants to ban all Samsung devices that infringe patents
iPhone maker Apple has sought for a court order to permanently ban sales of Samsung products in the US that infringe its patents. The company has also demanded an additional $707m in damages.
In a response to Apple’s move, Samsung has requested a new trial.
Apple’s demand is in addition to its $1.05bn victory over Samsung on 24 August 2012, which confirmed that Samsung’s products infringed Apple’s patents.
Both smartphone makers are involved in patent wars in about 10 countries globally in a bid to achieve the top position in the growing mobile market.
Apple in its filing said: "Samsung has reaped extraordinary rewards from its wrongful sale of iPhone and iPad clones by taking market share, revenues, and profits from Apple."
The iPhone maker’s filings for additional $707m in damages from Samsung include $400m for infringing its design, $135m for wilfully infringing its utility patents, $121m in additional damages as per sales of Samsung’s product that were not included in the jury’s consideration and $50m of prejudgment interest on damages through 31 December 2011.
Samsung in its filings said that 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.
"Samsung therefore respectfully requests that the Court grant a new trial enabling adequate time and even-handed treatment of the parties," Samsung said.
South Korea-based Samsung has also revealed its plans to add Apple’s new iPhone 5 to the current ongoing US patent lawsuits.
