Apple and Samsung may have both started their corporate lives as scrappy underdogs, but the two tech companies have grown into global giants. With that growth has come strife, as the two have sued and counter-sued one another dozens of times over intellectual property.
This morning, the two tech giants clashed again in a San Jose courtroom. This trial is essentially a re-do of the decision that last year awarded Apple more than $1 billion in damages related to patent infringement. The case focuses on some of Samsung’s original Galaxy products, phones and tablets that actually sold relatively poorly, and are no longer even on the market. After rounds of appeals, the trial now focuses specifically on 13 Samsung products, with at least $300 million dollars on the line.
