In a court filing late Friday evening Apple has actually asked for the court improve the $ 1.05 billion in loss a jury awarded it from Samsung for their patent lawsuit in California. FOSS Patents’ Florian Mueller has a breakdown of the figures, revealing that Apple has opted to look for improvement just on what the jury considered “willful” patent violation to the tune of $ 135 million (less than the 3x amount it could possibly have pursued) plus an extra $ 400 million for violation of trade outfit. That includes up to $ 1,756,455,218 it’s now seeking from Samsung, plus, as Reuters reporter Dan Levine notes, the anticipated request for long-term injunctions. That could possibly cover more than the products mentioned in the lawsuit, as Mueller also mentions Apple is requesting for an injunction against additional products with similar features, which might reach gadgets like the Galaxy S III. As typical, it’s all still far from over and the figures could change, but Samsung is undoubtedly merely hoping Apple’s lawyers utilize iOS 6 Maps for their next travel to the courtroom.
Update: Per FOSS Patents, adding in interest and extra damages Apple’s absolute request is now a tidy $ 707 million.
