[THE INVESTOR] Samsung Electronics on June 12 called for a retrial of the latest ruling by a US court, which ordered the Korean tech giant to give Apple US$539 million for design infringement.

According to industry sources, Samsung claimed that the amount from the latest ruling is excessive, demanding that the US District Court in San Jose, California, reconsider the ruling.

The conflict between the two companies surrounding the alleged design infringement started in 2011, with the court ruling in May ordering Samsung to compensate Apple.

The US company claimed Samsung violated its designs, such as a “black rectangular front face with rounded corners,” a “rectangular front face with rounded corners and a raised rim” and a “grid of 16 colorful icons on a black screen.”

Shortly after the court ruling, Samsung said it would “consider all options to obtain an outcome that does not hinder creativity and fair competition for all companies and consumers.”
