Apple and Samsung in court again over $1bn fine

Apple and Samsung are going to a place they both should be all too familiar with today; the courtroom. Samsung is hoping to fight off that massive $1bn judgement against them. Apple, on the other hand, is actually hoping to get another $535m tacked on to the judgement. Apple is arguing that because the jury ruled that Samsung's infringement was willful, it should be required to pay an even higher penalty.

No injunction for Motorola in Microsoft case, Judge says

The US patent suit between Motorola and Microsoft wrapped up last month, but today Motorola was dealt a pretty serious blow by federal Judge James Robart. Robart denied Motorola's request for an injunction on Microsoft products today, which of course means that Microsoft can continue selling the allegedly infringing products here in the US. That isn't the best sign for Google, which shelled out billions of dollars to buy Motorola, partly so it could have access to the company's massive patent portfolio.

Judge allows Samsung to peek in on HTC and Apple’s patent deal

Read on for more details.

Google vs. Microsoft patent trial wraps up with big claims

Hearings in the patent lawsuit between Google and Microsoft are winding down, and with the final day of testimony came one whopper of a claim from Motorola. Yesterday, Motorola sent expert Michael Dansky to the stand, who testified that Microsoft stands to make as much as $94 billion through 2017 with the allegedly illegal use of Motorola patents. His estimate includes products like the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Surface, but Reuters points out that Dansky didn't say how far back he was going to arrive at his estimate.

HTC CEO says Apple fee estimates are “outrageous”

When the news came out that Apple and HTC had come to a settlement, everyone was left wondering exactly what the terms of the settlement were. A report that seemed rock-solid came out saying that HTC was to pay Apple $6-$8 for each smartphone sold, and we thought that was the end of it. When asked about this number, HTC CEO Peter Chou said, according to Reuters, they were “baseless” and “very, very wrong.”

Judge rules that Apple and Samsung can add new product to lawsuit

The never-ending patent battles between Apple and Samsung have received another layer. Both companies were requesting to add new products to the existing lawsuit, and the judge was decided rather he should allow this. His thought was that, should he not allow it, both companies would just launch into a bunch more suits, which would be worse. With that in mind, Judge Grewal has decided to allow both companies to add additional products to the existing suit.
