He further added and said "Apple's design patents do not cover the entire phone". It "does not exist apart from, and can not be separated from, the infringing Samsung phones."Koh will let Kare and other Apple experts cite evidence from the first trial of Samsung's deliberate copying of the iPhone design".

That total was diminished to about $400m after the principal retrial and other lawful endeavors by the Galaxy cell phone creator.

Now the BBC reports that a third hearing has been set because the Supreme Court has found the calculations of the lower courts may have been in error.

This reference to the 1993 movie, in which a day repeats itself, restricts the two companies to rehashing the evidence they presented before rather than offering up new facts.

While the design patents are the main event, the jury will also award damages for Samsung's infringement of two utility patents related to manipulating documents on a touch screen.

In that capacity, it stated, the sum ought to have been restricted to the estimation of the culpable parts and not the entire gadgets. It did not make a ruling as to what the relevant article was in this case and has instead referred it back to California District Court.

Rather, the judges consistently chose that a honor could be constructed exclusively with respect to the estimation of the segments included. Apple may state it should, in any case, be the previous in this debate, contending that the telephones would have had no an incentive without the outlines of their bodies and UI.
