The Verge has a look at what’s on deck in the patent trial of the century:
Mixed in with all of this will be Apple’s inevitable motion to increase the damages based on the jury’s finding that Samsung’s infringement was willful. This is Apple’s most important outstanding issue. The law allows Koh to increase the damages up to three times if the jury finds willful infringement, so Apple’s billion-dollar win could turn into three billion. While significantly increasing damages based solely on a finding of willfulness is not the norm, there are reasons for Samsung to be worried.
As Apple has absolutely no motivation to reach a settlement now that the jury has dealt them such an advantageous hand, I expect Samsung to drag this out as much as possible. Depending on how much the judge increases damages, Samsung may end up seeing all its Android phone profit in the states disappear.
