Court documents reveal that Microsoft is asking for $6.9 million in unpaid interest in its lawsuit against Samsung last year over licensing. Microsoft originally filed the suit against Samsung stating that the latter owes it a licensing royalty on each Android Galaxy phone or tablet and that the former's purchase of Nokia's devices and service division didn't violate the company's contract with Samsung.
Here is the suit that Microsoft filed:
In 2013, the unsealed suit revealed that Samsung paid Microsoft $1 billion in royalties. The suit claims that Samsung didn't make its second year royalty payments on time, with Samsung claiming that it shouldn't have to pay because Microsoft acquired Nokia, a competing smartphone manufacturer.
Despite the suit, the two tech giants have been warming up to each other again with Samsung recently agreeing to use Microsoft's Office suite in favor of its own homegrown solution.
Is $6.9 million in unpaid interest alone too high?
