On my Mum's birthday, August 9, Apple and Samsung will head into court to continue their patent battle. The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, DC said on Monday that it will hear oral arguments from both companies on the day.

Apple are appealing Judge Lucy Koh's decision to not slap Samsung with a sales ban on a bunch of their Galaxy-branded devices that were found to infringe on Apple's patents. Apple were originally ordered over $1 billion from Samsung, but Koh cut the damages to around $450 million in December - less than half the original amount.

 

Koh determined that the jury's calculations were flawed, and the damages were then softened. Koh also ordered a partial retrial that will happen in November, where Samsung will find out just how much they'll have to sign over to Apple.
