SeongJoon Cho/Bloomberg via Getty Images(SAN JOSE, Calif.) — The long $1 billion patent fight between Apple and Samsung resumes on Thursday.  The two companies will square off again in a federal courtroom in San Jose, Calif.

Samsung wants to overturn a jury verdict reached in August.  Jurors then found the Korean company guilty of infringing on a number of Apple software patents for the iPad and iPhone. 

Among the copied features was one that allows users to tap their screen to zoom in and out of an image.  Another was a scrolling “bounce back” feature.

The jury recommended that Samsung pay Apple more than $1 billion in damages.  Now, Apple is seeking to add $500 million more to that amount.
