12/25/2015


Apple has sued another lawsuit against Samsung Electronics, requiring additional payments of $ 180 million for patent infringement.



According to Apple, the damage is done by Samsung five devices, sold by the South Korean company after the court verdict of 2012, found Samsung guilty of patent infringement.

December 4, it was reported that Samsung, after a five-year patent war with Apple, for the first time agreed to pay damages of 548 million dollars fixed by US court.

Apple filed the first lawsuit in the spring of 2011, thereby launching a patent war with the South Korean manufacturer. In 2012, the court found Samsung guilty of violating five patents of US companies regarding mobile technology, as well as design and appearance of the iPhone.

The court's decision stated that the proprietary elements copied by the South Korean manufacturer are the phone front side, device framing and the graphical user interface. Furthermore, according to the decision of the jury, Samsung has borrowed Apple's technology development gestures: in particular, it is the double tap on the screen to zoom in on the document.

The American company sought compensation in the amount of $ 2.5 billion, but the court assessed the damage of 1 billion. In 2015, Samsung has managed to reduce this amount to 930 million, and then in May - up to 548 million dollars.
