Apple Wants $3B in Damages from Samsung

That's a hefty price tag, and triple the initial award


Apple will reportedly request $3 billion in damages from Samsung for patent infringement, triple the amount initially awarded by a court.

Attorneys for Apple plan to ask U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to order Samsung to pay $3 billion after losing the recent patent suit between the two companies, reports the Korea Times. A hearing is set for Friday in which Apple will argue its case.
