Patent wars between Samsung and Apple continue to rage on, with both sides presenting their closing arguments for the current retrial on Monday. The matter is very complicated, but essentially in the original trial between Apple and Samsung, the jury found that multiple Samsung devices did indeed infringe on Apple’s patents. Despite the fact that multiple Apple patents were infringed upon, damages were only awarded for one patent, and what should have been awarded to Apple was miscalculated.
Samsung has paid $400 million of the original $1.05 billion that Apple was awarded, and Apple is now seeking a further $380 million on top of the remaining $650 million that Apple is owed. Samsung, however, believes that they are only responsible for a further $52 million.
