Apple is going for the jugular this time! Apparently those $1.05 billion dollars were not enough, and the company has filed a request to get an extra $707 million in additional damages and interest for infringing on the Apple’s designs. But oh no, it doesn’t stop there. Apple wants those Samsung devices banned in the US once and for all (we know Apple wants a plethora of old and new devices banned).

This would not cover all Samsung devices, but based on the request, such ban would apply to most. The US sales ban would apply to “any of the infringing products or any other product with a feature or features not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products.”

Yeah, that is pretty much all of them, with very few exceptions, probably. In return, Samsung has asked for a new trial, as the last one didn’t give them enough time to present a “full and fair” case. This could be getting ugly, guys. We will definitely keep our ears open for this one, so stay tuned!
