Apple and Samsung will meet in a San Jose, CA, court for a week to determine how much Samsung owes for illegally using three Apple design patents and two utility patents. The lawsuit, initially filed in 2011, went to the Supreme Court in late 2016 before being sent back to the lower court. Samsung has already been found to infringe Apple's patents. The argument centers on how much it owes Apple for copying some of its patented features, like the rectangular shape of the iPhone. In Dec. 2015, Samsung asked the Supreme Court to determine whether design patent damages could be based on part of a device, not the entire gadget. The court accepted the request and held a hearing in October 2016 -- the first time it had examined a design patent case since the 1800s.
