Apple wants to receive another 180 million from Samsung
Processes involving Apple and Samsung are true novels that have unfolded over the years. In addition to the multiple concurrent processes, there are also conflicting decisions which are quickly changing. After recently reached an agreement, Apple decided now to require another 180 million from Samsung.
The initial Apple’s request, when the process was initiated, was focused on patent infringement that Samsung have done when created several of their equipment. As compensation, Apple demanded that Samsung should pay 2.5 billion dollars, which the court did not agree. Despite giving reason to Apple, the value would be only one billion dollars.
Of course will all requests for review from both parties, the amount would eventually be much lower, but the agreement was possible. The 548 million dollars were eventually paid by Samsung earlier this month.
Now Apple returned to court to demand another 180 million from Samsung. Apple wants to be offset by sales that Samsung made after this process, focused on five new smartphones. In the process lodged in California court last Thursday, it was not clear what exact models of smartphones, but it is evident that Apple feels aggrieved and therefore wants to receive.
Samsung wants the case to be reviewed and that the decision of 2012 to be amended in its favor, which could lead to the case being tried again and lay on the ground all previously established agreements.
Even with all the agreements already reached between Apple and Samsung, there are still these frictions and hardly this will be a case that will be resolved soon.
