Court Filing Reveals Exactly How Much Apple Wants Samsung To Pay In Damages For Each Device

Apple is seeking around $2.5 billion in damages from Samsung.

Apple wants Samsung to stump up a whopping $2.5 billion in damages for allegedly copying its iOS devices, but how much does Apple feel it is owed specifically for each device? A new court filing entitled “Summary of Apple’s Damages Calculations” provides a complete breakdown of the damages, and shows exactly which of Samsung’s Galaxy devices are accused of infringing Apple’s patents, and what the Cupertino company is demanding in damages for each one.

The document was produced by Invotex Group, a consulting firm that specializes in calculating royalty rates for litigation. It details for different scenarios — based on profits — each with totals ranging from $2.47 billion to $2.88 billion in damages.

But what’s most interesting is the table that show precisely how these numbers came about, or which of Samsung’s Galaxy devices are accused of infringing Apple’s intellectual property. There are 28 all together, and the table highlights exactly which utility patents, design patents, and trade dress claims each one is allegedly infringing.

As you can see, Samsung’s original Galaxy S smartphone is said to be the biggest offender, violating three utility patents, three design patents, and three trade dress claims.

The document then details the amount of “reasonable royalty” Apple should be entitled to for each device. In the first scenario, pictured below, Apple feels it is entitled to royalties from six devices, totaling $21,244,907.

    Apple is asking for a lot but will likely end up with very little. The courts believe that Apple is merely wasting time and legal expense and are harming consumers as well by trying to enforce somewhat vague patents.

    They can dream on, Samsung has not copied them at all, and it is Android with the utility patents.

    $25 billion is a more reasonable number. At least it’s accurate.

    They can dream on, Samsung has not copied them at all, and it is Android with the utility patents.

    No one on Earth is this stupid. Please try your trolling again.
