Apple v. Samsung - Apple Seeks $2 Billion for Patent Infringement

Today, the federal district court for San Jose, California heard opening arguments in Apple v. Samsung which is their second major trial for patent infringement. Apple is now seeking Samsung pay $2 billion for infringement of five U.S. patents. Aggressive lawyering, the hyperbole - we could have sued on 50 patents and the judge has instructed you ... (when Judge Koh hadn't), an embarrassing "Holy war" email, each companies unabated ambition to be #1, and the billions at stake suggest this trial (like the first trial) will go to judgment.
