The battle continues and now after a few days in which we have returned to hear about the trial between Apple and Samsung for the demand on the copy of the South Koreans with the Galaxy models, appears the refusal of the payment of 539 million dollars of compensation by Samsung.
So this, rather than being close to its end, is closer to continuing for a while on the frontline. The South Korean company is not willing to assume this amount of money to compensate for damages, for which it is denounced and they have requested the revision of the sanction with the refusal of the payment of this sum of money.
The battle continues between both companies
They have been with this demand for more than 7 years and it seems that they will not be “like friends” despite the fact that Apple and Samsung had not been protagonists of the judicial battles we lived a few years ago especially in the time of Jobs. In this case from Samsung it is assured that the copy of its Galaxy model is not as obvious as it seems and they reduce the amount that they would have to pay up to an amount that we do not think Apple likes, about 30 million dollars.
This new pulse in the judicial process speaks of the “copy” specific components and not of the iPhone in general, so they do not believe that the huge sanction imposed is fair, however Apple is very clear that the first Samsung Galaxy models are a copy of the first iPhone. In any case it is important to say that Apple filed the complaint for the reasonable similarity in general of the Galaxy, both in the design and in the position of the apps and others. So it seems that the dispute between the two will be intense this summer.
