Apple Demands Another $707 Million in Damages From Samsung
Samsung Responds By Demanding Entirely New Trial
by Karl Bode 02:23PM Monday Sep 24 2012
Unsatisfied with their $1 billion legal patent victory over Samsung, Apple is now asking the courts for another $707 million in additional damages. According to Reuters, Apple says the company wants damages that reflect "a rational and fair effort to address Samsung's willful misconduct that has and will impose lasting harm on Apple." The Cupertino company is still seeking a U.S. sales ban on Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet and Samsung's flagship Galaxy S3 smartphone. "It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies," complained Samsung in a statement. Samsung has responded to the courts by demanding an entirely new trial.

Samsung copied no one.
PDAs with touch screens with phone call capabilities came out a long time ago.
The abbreviation "apps" was used since the early 90s on the internet.
The iphone looks just like the samsung picture frame released in 2006.

They definitely need a new trial. The jurors even admitted after the fact they ignored all prior art and just awarded apple the win.

Hope a New Trial is Granted

Given how the jury openly admitted that they refused to consider prior art with regards to invalidating some of Apple's patents, and given the blatant refusal of the trial judge to allow for Samsung to present evidence to defend itself, I sincerely hope the original trial verdict is tossed.
