Apple looking for further Samsung sales ban, wants $707 million more in damages

Seems like Apple wants to put Samsung out of commission, at least in the US. After its victory over Samsung about a month ago, the firm from Cupertino is looking for a sales ban on all infringing Samsung products in the US that applies to “any of the infringing products or any other product with a feature or features not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products.” Reading between the lines, that particular request means that most of Samsung’s current products would fall under the ban, which includes their recently launched Galaxy S III. In addition to that particular sales ban, Apple is also looking to get $707 million on top of the $1 billion that they’re getting from Sammy.  Of course, the Korean firm isn’t going to take this lying down, and has responded by asking for a new trial. “The Court’s constraints on trial time, witnesses and exhibits were unprecedented for a patent case of this complexity and magnitude, and prevented Samsung from presenting a full and fair case in response to Apple’s many claims,” Samsung said. Samsung also directly challenged Apple over their overly aggressive litigation, saying that “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.”
