Apple Inc. will face off with Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. at the U.S. Supreme Court on Oct. 11 in connection with a longtime legal dispute that saw the South Korean company accused of copying the iPhone's design, Bloomberg reported Oct. 10.
The two smartphone makers will make their arguments over $399 million awarded to Apple for patent infringement. The amount reportedly reflects the Samsung Group unit's profit from 11 of its phones that were found to have copied Apple's design features.
Samsung claims the amount is a "disproportionate" sum for infringing patents, while Apple says it is an appropriate amount for "blatant copying" of the iPhone, the report said.
This comes six years after Apple filed its first lawsuit concerning its design claims, according to Bloomberg, and nearly a year after Samsung petitioned the Supreme Court to review the award.
