The Supreme Court will review a patent case between global tech giants Apple and Samsung, U.S. media reported Monday.
In 2012, a District Court decided that Samsung should pay Apple $930 million in damages for a patent violation in the design of its smartphones.
After battling in the court, Samsung managed to trim that amount to $548 million, which it paid in December. Now, the South Korean firm is trying to get $399 million of that amount returned through appeal.
Apple claims the color, front face, and rounded corners of its flagship iPhone model have been copied by Samsung, the South Korean firm does not accept the California-based company’s arguments.
According to experts in the U.S., Apple’s victory in the Supreme Court could provide a precedent and pave the way for other tech companies to sue each other for design rights of their products.
The Supreme Court can review the case as early as October, according to U.S. media. Meanwhile, Samsung provides the A9 chipset in Apple's latest flagship iPhone 6s and 6s Plus handsets. (Anadolu Agency)
