The Apple vs. Samsung case has been underway for a little while now and details have been leaked over the course of the trial. Prototypes have surfaced and it seems like Apple is doing a great job defending their claims. Now a report has been revealed showing exactly how much Apple plans on extracting from Samsung’s bank account, and it’s a lot of cash. Watch out Samsung…
In a recently revealed document, a new court filing entitled “Summary of Apple’s Damages Calculations” shows what Apple plans to gain from a potential win of the current trial involving Samsung.
Killian Bell of Cult of Mac reports:
The document was produced by Invotex Group, a consulting firm that specializes in calculating royalty rates for litigation. It details for different scenarios — based on profits — each with totals ranging from $2.47 billion to $2.88 billion in damages.

What’s even more interesting is that Apple isn’t just throwing out random demands, they’ve put together a detailed breakdown of exactly which patents and designs Samsung has infringed on ( 28 in all) over the course of their product development.
Samsung’s original Galaxy S smartphone seems to be the biggest perpetrator. The Samsung smartphone has violated nine patents including utility-based, trade dress, and design. Apple is asking for their reasonable share of royalties from Samsung’s profits on the Galaxy S in the amount of $21,244,907.
I guess Apple is taking this trial seriously. Samsung better back off the patent theft or risk becoming a slave to Apple lawsuits.

Do you think Apple is going overboard on this or is Samsung in the wrong?
