Apple again brands Samsung 'copycat' in billion-dollar damages case

Washington: Apple has reportedly accused Samsung as 'copycat' once again claiming billions of dollars in damages.

Last week, Samsung had offered a brief preview of its plans, including an effort to downplay Apple's copycat claims by focusing on features it offered that Apple hadn't, like larger-screened phones with removable batteries, LTE, styluses, NFC sensors, and certain software features like multi-window applications

According to the Verge, Apple branded Samsung as ' copycat' and following nearly five full days of court rested their case against the South Korean company, who will now turn to go on the offensive and undercut Apple's efforts by playing out their plans over the course of the next two weeks.

In its opening last week, Samsung also reportedly pointed to internal Apple documents and media articles about the success of its marketing, something it's hoping will sway jurors into viewing its popularity as something outside of these specific software features.

With Apple resting the case both the companies are reportedly at a risk of potentially large sums of money and possible sales ban on products if they are deemed to be infringing on the patents.

Apple wants damages of 2.191 million-dollars, while Samsung is going after Apple for about 6.9 million-dollars, but these amounts could be far less depending on how the jury decides, the report added.
