Apple Wants More Samsung Products Banned Following Verdict
SAN JOSE (CBS / AP) — Fresh off its court victory over Samsung Electronics Co., iPhone maker Apple Inc. is asking a federal court to add four more of its rival’s products to the list of patent-infringing products.
Apple filed documents in San Jose federal district court on Friday asking a judge to end Samsung’s release of “copycat products,” and urged the court to pull Samsung products released after its lawsuit was filed in April.
The new products include Samsung’s new Galaxy S III smartphone.
Previously Apple had listed 17 Samsung products as patent violators, but the new filing lists 21.
Apple was awarded $1.05 billion by a jury on Aug. 24, finding Samsung had copied Apple’s design innovations.
A Samsung representative did not immediately return a request for comment Friday.
