Samsung asks court for $421m from Apple in damages

Patent lawsuit now moves to Apple's rebuttal

The back-and-forth patent battle between tech giants Apple and Samsung moved forward in court today, as Samsung rested its case with a massive damages demand: $421 million.

Samsung's case involves patents of various kinds, including those covering music playback, photo browsing and email as well as "standards-essential" patents, patents essential to an industry that are sometimes criticized as outdated. Holders of standards-essential patents are required to offer licenses of them as FRAND, or fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory. Whether Samsung made a FRAND offer and Apple declined it, then used the patents anyway, is an essential part of the case.
