Apple is claiming that Samsung should pay over $1 billion for ripping off its patents, which Samsung says is a gross exaggeration.

During the earlier trial, Apple lawyer Seth Waxman argued that the design patent referred to "the thing to which the design is applied", meaning the entire smartphone.

"It could be that Samsung wants to prove a point that patents shouldn't be overused", Risch said.

"The only way Apple can come up with $1bn in damages is by saying the article of manufacture applies to the whole phone", Quinn said.

That figure, according to Samsung, comes to $28 million.

"They're seeking profits on the entire phone", he said.

While the design patents are the main event, the jury will also award damages for Samsung's infringement of two utility patents related to manipulating documents on a touch screen. "That is what the law requires".

"The iPhone was praised by commentators, consumers, designers, artists and even some competitors", Lee said during opening argument. The design patents cover a black rectangular front face with rounded corners and a graphical user interface featuring a grid of 16 colorful icons.

Apple then took the smartphone market by storm due to how it packaged technology, rather than developing the technology itself.

The launch of the iPhone was a pivotal moment for Apple, he said. If Samsung pays up, this could set a precedent that would affect how companies can be sued for patent infringements in the future. "To make something exactly like the iPhone". But, it seems like that Apple is targeting Google by means of Samsung by demanding $1 Billion amount from Samsung. In that capacity, it stated, the sum ought to have been restricted to the estimation of the culpable parts and not the entire gadgets.

After the latest retrial, Samsung, Apple and Intel are scheduled to stand together in the United States trade watchdog FTC's suit against Qualcomm for the latter's alleged attempt to charge its customers for patented technology that it did not actually use.

Apple and Samsung are headed back to court to continue their long-standing patent trial. This verdict has resulted that Samsung needs to give $930 million to Apple.

Speaking about the newly started trial, the core issue between the two companies is whether the damages should be based on the total value of the device, or whether Samsung should pay a fee based just on the elements of the phone that it copied.
