Apple and Samsung’s litigation continues as Apple demands $2.525 billion from Samsung due to previous patent infringements. Foss Patents did a unit cost breakdown on how much money Apple is actually requesting. Apple wants $2.02 for every Samsung product that uses the “overscroll bounce” feature, another $2.02 for devices that allow “tap to zoom and navigate,” $3.10 for devices that have a “scrolling API,” plus an unbelievable amount of $24 for each device that breaks an Apple design patent. This has become ridiculous as Apple has become the school bully and frankly, I think people are tired of it.
It sounds like all of Apple’s claims are based on design and aesthetic patents and not anything technical. These statistics will have no bearing on which company the U.S court will decide to award.
Who do you think the U.S court will rule in favor of? I’m seriously hoping it’s Samsung as they make the better product anyway.
