The war between Apple and Samsung on the patent front seems to never end…and it is about to get worse. Cupertino-based Apple filed a motion late Friday afternoon against South Korean-based Samsung, asking for another $707 million in damages on top of the $1.05 billion it was awarded in late August. Apple said it wants “$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,” reported Reuters. Not going to give up without a fight, Samsung asked for a separate trial. It could face damages and key devices like the Galaxy S III could be taken off the market per Apple’s request if found guilty. The last U.S. trial focused on older Samsung devices like the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab 10.1, but Samsung’s newer devices look to be in focus this time around. So, it appears we will be doing this all over again. [Reuters]
