Apple is apparently seeking $2.5 billion in damages from Samsung after their almost 2 years of battle in court. Now we have details on what the money is for and the division between the various claims. Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents discovered last month that Apple filed for $2.525 billion in damages from the rival.
These figures can be found in a Summary of Apple’s Damages Calculations exhibit, that was prepared by accounting consulting firm Invotex Group. This company is specialized in calculating royalty rates for litigation. The document shows 4 damage scenarios, going from $2.47 billion to $2.88 billion, depending on Apple’s lost profits counted and patents breached. Apple also shows a table that details its patents, design patents and the products that Samsung made, infringing its property.
The list includes models like Nexus S 4G, Galaxy S , Galaxy S II, Galaxy Tab, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Infuse 4G, Fascinate, Galaxy Ace and many more. The Galaxy S is shown as the biggest breach in patents and it’s shown as infringing on 9 counts, 3 utility patents, 3 design patents and 3 trade dress claims. For every device Apple marks the profit it lost and also takes into account Samsung’s profits. To give you an idea, in the tablet area, the 3 Galaxy Tab models add up to $81 million in damages.
