UPDATE: Apple has been awarded $290 million in damages in its patent feud with Samsung by a San Jose, California jury on Thursday, November 21, 2013. The legal battle was over Samsung's copying of the iPhone and iPad in 13 Samsung smartphones and tablets. The amount is very close to what Apple was hoping for.

A Samsung-Apple jury has begun its second day deliberating on the patent violation claim filed by Apple. The ongoing lawsuit is to determine whether Apple should receive $380 million in addition to the $600 million it has already been awarded. Today, a jury is in its second day of deliberations and according to The Guardian "they asked the judge for calculators Tuesday to help determine how much Samsung owes for copying key features in 13 of its own phones and tablets sold in the U.S., after an earlier jury verdict in August 2012." This is the latest stage in the seemingly endless legal battle between the two tech giants, who have both sought sales bans against one another in Europe, Australia, the Far East, and the United States.

The Guardian explains: "Apple won an appeal court verdict on Monday which could mean that it will be able to enforce sales bans against a number of Samsung products for infringing functional patents — relating to how they work, not how they look — first used on the iPhone." In December, original attempts by Apple to prevent Samsung from selling certain devices were turned down after being appealed by Samsung. In a ruling federal judge Lucy Koh determined, "The company didn't prove that consumers bought Samsung Devices instead of Apple devices because of the infringement."

Samsung Electronics Co filed patent lawsuits against Apple over the U.S. firm's iPhone and iPad in a tit-for-tat case after Apple claimed Samsung's smartphones and tablets "slavishly" copied its products. Samsung's counter lawsuit, its first against its biggest client, comes days before it launches a new product and could jeopardize business ties between the two companies, as Apple relies on Samsung for component supplies such as chips and LCD displays.

Today the jury is trying to decide what additional damages Samsung will owe Apple after $400 million of their previous $1.05 billion award was voided. Judge Koh believed the jurors miscalculated the amounts owed on the 13 of 26 products that were found to infringe on Apple's patents. New damages could range anywhere from $52 million, what Samsung thinks is an appropriate amount, to what Apple believes is fair — $380 million.

Whatever the jury decides, this won't be the last we hear about Apple vs. Samsung. They are scheduled to go head to head in what might be an even bigger trial that is scheduled for March 2014 in California. At that trial Apple will argue against some of Samsung's existing products that they believe infringe on their patents.
