The best evidence yet that Apple has gotten too greedy in its war against Samsung


The Apple vs. Samsung patent showdown has mostly been a one-sided affair so far, as juries have regularly awarded Apple massive sums of money at Samsung’s expense. However, FOSS Patents’ Florian Mueller thinks that Apple may have finally gone too far with its latest suit that claims $2.2 billion in damages against Samsung and that has the potential to permanently cripple its ability to make a profit from selling smartphones. We already know that Apple is demanding a staggering $40-per-device fee in exchange for letting Samsung use just five of its patents but Mueller points out that Apple is trying to get Samsung to pay $12.49 per device for one patent that the company before charged Motorola $0.60 per device to license.
