Apple told jurors that Samsung should hand over all the profit it made on four devices that were heavily inspired by the iPhone.

Tech giants Apple and Samsung are back in court today over their long-running patent feud. We all are very much aware of this patent-infringement dispute.

After the latest retrial, Samsung, Apple and Intel are scheduled to stand together in the United States trade watchdog FTC's suit against Qualcomm for the latter's alleged attempt to charge its customers for patented technology that it did not actually use. Seeing its market share dwindle and hoping to resurrect its flagging fortunes, Lee said, Samsung copied Apple's emphasis on design and watched as its sales soar once again.

It's not like that Apple has accused Samsung of copying, Samsung has also accused Apple of copying its designing features.

A plan patent is a 25-year enrolled imposing business model right, which portrays another, unique and decorative outline for a made question. The court ordered Apple and Samsung to negotiate a date for a retrial to settle the award money for Apple.

Kare continued to by saying "it's an organic, holistic design" which infringes upon Apple's patent. The retrial of this patent violation has begun and Apple has demanded $1 billion in damages from its rival.

Samsung is asking the jury to determine how much each of these discrete elements is worth and then assess damages accordingly.

The basic question for the jury is: Should Samsung have to pay damages on the whole device or just the components that were infringed? Samsung's lawyers appealed the case, bringing down the compensation of $1 billion to $400 million in 2015 at the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

John Quinn, a founding partner of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan who is representing Samsung alongside firm partners William Price and Victoria Maroulis, countered Lee's argument in his opening statements, arguing that Apple should receive the total phone profits.

Instead, the judges unanimously decided that an award could be based exclusively on the value of the components involved. This might be a valid point from Samsung as Apple should not ask for the profit which has been made by the phone's internal features. Morrison & Foerster partner Harold McElhinny, who once played the leading role for Apple, has retired and partner Rachel Krevans, who also represented the Cupertino, California-based company died previous year.
