Apple may ask Judge to triple damages to $3 billion

According to Korea Times, Apple may ask U.S. Federal Judge Lucy Koh to triple Samsung’s damages when both the parties meet again at the judgment as a matter of law (JMOL) hearing. The jury last month ruled that Samsung willfully infringed some of the Apple patents and awarded the American company $1.05 billion in damages. Now using the same “willful infringement” argument, Apple will try to convince the judge to triple the damages to a whopping $3 billion.

On the other side, Samsung’s lawyer, Mr. Quinn will be working to convince the judge to throw the jury’s decision and if unsuccessful, appeal the decision.

APPLE a bien assez de fric pour les 1000ans avenir vu le prix de fabrication des produits
il ont qu’a economiser du pognon, les faire un peut plus solide, moins payer les pdg et les actionnaires engraisse qui mettent la vaseline aux consommateur.
il veulent la vache, le lait, le beurre, l’argent du beurre et la cremiere, toute les autes marques aussi idem.

I bet they do.

And all because the iPhone 5 is a P.O.S. and Apple knows it lags behind the Galaxy Line

Surely Apple is scared because their products have not fallen in sales so their path is one of the laws, is a stupidity which makes Apple can not curl up their sleeves and work hard to be more competitive.

Well, Apple need to pay their bills and they need to make money to do that. Selling phones, apparently, is not an option anymore, so they need to find another way..
