SAN FRANCISCO ‚?? Apple Inc. on Monday submitted a list of eight Samsung Electronics Co. products it wants pulled from shelves and banned from the U.S. market.
Apple submitted the list after a jury found Samsung copied the iPhone and iPad in creating and marketing the products.
The products are: Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.
A judge will decide the issue later.
Apple claimed in a sweeping lawsuit that Samsung‚??s smartphones and computer tablets ‚??slavishly copied‚?Ě the iPhones and iPads. Samsung countered with its own claims that Apple used its wireless technology without proper compensation.
A nine-person jury in its verdict last week unanimously agreed with Apple and ordered Samsung to pay $1 billion. Most of the damages were tied to Samsung‚??s smartphones. It rejected Samsung‚??s counterclaims.
The award represents about 1.5 percent of Samsung‚??s annual revenue. Analysts said the embarrassment of the verdict is a bigger blow for Samsung than the financial setback.
Still, the question remains whether Samsung and other Apple competitors will have to redesign their smartphones to avoid infringing Apple‚??s patents. Most analysts agree the verdict sends a threatening message to device makers like Samsung who use Google‚??s Android operating system.
