After its first loss on Friday in Japan in an ongoing and global battle vs. Samsung over intellectual property rights, Apple Insider reports that Apple has filed a new complaint with a California Court, arguing that four additional Samsung products infringe on its patented technology.
In a brief filed with the United States District Court of Northern California, Apple asserts that in addition to the devices that have already been deemed to infringe on several Apple patents in the company's first trial against Samsung, the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S3-Verizon, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 10.1 also utilize patent-infringing technologies.

Apple is also asserting that Samsung is infringing on four additional Apple patents, including the company's "Data Detectors," "slide-to-unlock," "word completion," and "universal search" technologies.
In the brief, Apple claims "Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smartphone and tablet computer products, Samsung has chosen to copy Apple's technology, user interface, and innovate style in its phone, media player, and tablet computer products...Samsung continues to choose to infringe Apple's patent rights through the design and promotion of its mobile phones, tablet computers, and media players to trade upon the goodwill that Apple has developed in connection with its Apple family of mobile products."
Apple goes on to ask the court for an order against Samsung from further patent infringement, a judgment awarding Apple all damages based on willful infringement, a judgment awarding all of Samsung's related profits to Apple, actual damages suffered by Apple as a result of Samsung's actions, costs of court and attorney fees and any other "relief" that the court deems 'just and proper."
Finally, the brief ends in Apple requesting a jury trial to decide upon the complaints detailed in the court document.
In last month's Apple vs. Samsung trial, presided over by Judge Lucy Koh, a jury found Samsung guilty of infringement on a number of older-model Samsung devices. As a result it was ruled that eight Samsung products be banned from the United States marketplace and that Samsung pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages. Samsung has said that it will appeal these judgments up to the level of the Supreme Court if necessary.
