Samsung forced to reveal sales figures in Apple dispute

By
Samsung has been ordered to reveal sales figures for devices relevant to its long-running patent dispute with Apple.

US District Court Judge Lucy Koh rejected the Korean tech giant's request to keep the data concealed following the iPhone-maker's $1.05 billion (£665 million) court victory over its rival.

The figures must include the total number of unit sales for products at the centre of the lawsuit during the time period in question, Bloomberg reports.

Both sides have fought to keep sales statistics out of the public eye, but Samsung was forced to reveal them for 24 of its devices back in August as part of a previous courtroom dispute.

Judge Koh granted Samsung's request to keep per-unit operating profits for two of its handsets secret, with an appeal pending.

Apple was unsuccessful in its attempt to enforce a sales ban on the allegedly-infringing Samsung products last month.
