Judge Admonishes Samsung on Day 2 of Patent Trial

And she accepted that in the design patent illustrations, some elements of the phone drawn with dotted lines are not part of what Apple claimed in the patent.

Had Apple not released the iPhone, it anxious that mobile carriers could easily make the iPod obsolete by adding music to their phones, which served as a "gigantic threat" to the company and its mainstay media player.

The 289 statute in US code stipulates that anyone found guilty of design patent infringement must relinquish all profits they derived from the infringing product.

The jury will only be ruling on what the appropriate amount Samsung should pay in damages should be, rather than whether any laws were infringed. He asked them to "step back in time" to 2006 to consider flip phones, sliders, and what other cell phones looked like before Apple's iPhone.

Despite the high-profile court battle, Samsung keeps maintaining complex business relations with Apple.

The jury in 2012 had rewarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages. There's no doubt that Samsung will have to pay Apple something, but exactly how much it will pay remains anyone's guess.

During the earlier trial, Apple lawyer Seth Waxman argued that the design patent referred to "the thing to which the design is applied", meaning the entire smartphone. The big deal here is going to be over Samsung paying damages for the total value of the device, or whether it's going to be a fee base on the parts of the iPhone that they reportedly copied.

The arguments are centred around "articles of manufacture", a legal term to describe the portions of a device covered by a patent. Samsung has already shelled out $548 million, but it's the other $399 million that's being fought over.

At issue were design features by now familiar to consumers: a black, rectangular, round-cornered phone front, a surrounding rim, known as the "bezel" and a grid of 16 colorful icon.

In late 2016, the US Supreme Court made the ruling in favor of Samsung's side in a unanimous decision.

The Samsung lawyer argued that the scope of Apple patents are "very narrow" and hence it should only be paying the profits made on copying the components.

Samsung attorneys, according to Bloomberg, argued this week that the damages should be paid based exclusively based on three "narrow" design patents - which would amount to $28 million.
