Apple Lists Samsung Products It Wants Banned; Samsung Vows To Fight

As you probably heard, over the weekend, a jury found in favor of Apple in the computer company’s fight against Samsung over allegations that the latter willfully copied Apple’s iPad and iPhone designs to make its own products. Now, Apple has provided the judge with its list of eight Samsung products it says should no longer be sold in the U.S.

Here are the products that Apple feels fall under the lawsuit’s umbrella:

Galaxy S 4G

Galaxy S2 AT&T

Galaxy S2

Galaxy S2 T-Mobile

Galaxy S2 Epic 4G

Galaxy S Showcase

Droid Charge

Galaxy Prevail

This is only a fraction of the 28 devices originally listed in Apple’s lawsuit. Many of those offending items are no longer for sale in the U.S. market.

The judge had already placed a ban on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 because she believed it infringed upon a design patent, but the jury in the case found that the Samsung tablet did not infringe on that particular patent.

A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 20 to review the above list, but it’s possible that this date will be pushed back as Samsung has said this is not enough time to sufficiently prepare.

But the AP reports Samsung says the verdict is not supported by the evidence in the case and it plans to appeal the case, all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court if need be.

Meanwhile, Apple feels that the $1.05 billion in damages should actually be tripled to $3.15 billion because the jury found that Samsung’s patent violations were done willfully.
