Apple (AAPL) is seeking a sales ban on nine older models of Samsung (SSNLF) phones after it won a lawsuit which found that the South Korean company infringed on three patents.

Although Apple won $120M of the $2.2B it sought in the case, the tech giant argues that a ban would be more important than monetary damages.

While Apple also infringed one Samsung patent, the latter has yet to pursue a ban on Apple products.

Meanwhile, Apple, along with Adobe (ADBE), Intel (INTC) and Google (GOOG), has confirmed a report that they have agreed to pay $324M to settle claims they limited competition by conspiring not to hire each others' workers.
