"Do you remember what cell phones looked like in 2006?" Samsung provides key components to Apple's flagship laptops, smartphones and table computers. The case was decided in Apple's favor in 2012 and it was awarded $1.05 billion in damages.
Samsung made $3.3 billion (roughly Rs. 22,400 crores) in revenue and $1 billion in profit from millions of phones that infringed Apple's three design patents, Lee said. On the other hand, Samsung only wants to provide a mere $28 million in reimbursements.
The retrial focuses on a few handsets that are never again sold by Samsung, including the Droid Charge, Mesmerize and Galaxy S2.
The legal dispute between the two tech giants dates to 2011 when Apple sued Samsung. Apple originally sought $2.75 billion in damages.
"Apple's patents aren't applied to the things on the inside of the phone and even some of the [things on the] outside", Quinn said.
It argued that consumers had not bought the phones for their aesthetics alone, but also their functionality.
Apple asserts that its the entire phone, while Samsung says the definition could be restricted to components.
"What was Samsung's solution?" he asked the jury rhetorically. The first request followed an objection from Apple to Quinn's reference to slides showing pre-2010 phones.
In the latest trial, Apple has the burden of proof to prove that Samsung should pay the full $1 billion in damages. In its opinion, lower courts should not always consider that the end product is the "relevant article of manufacture" in patent infringement cases.
In the six years between then and now, the two companies have been duking it out in the courts to determine whether Samsung needs to pay damages based on the total value of the iPhone it copied or just a fine based on the design elements of the phone it nicked.
The case revolves around what consists of an "article of manufacture".
The latest trial kicked off in San Jose, Calif., after a judge previous year found the jury instructions in the original 2012 trial misstated the law and ordered a new trial.
The Apple-Samsung patent fight has been going on a long time, and the third time the matter is before Koh.
Apple has described how the iPhone and overall product design became embedded in the company's DNA. The design patents that Samsung infringed concern the physical shape that would become the iPhone, the bezel, and the colorful grid of icons.
