Shares of Apple rose about 3% in Monday afternoon trading.

Apple recently ended its patent infringement fight with HTC with a licensing deal that reportedly includes payments of up to $8 per HTC device. HTC officials have disputed reports that the licensing terms are that high, but have refused to say what the company is paying Apple.

Apple has now requested the following Samsung products be banned in the U.S.:

  • Galaxy S III
  • Galaxy Tab
  • Galaxy Tab 2
  • Rugby Pro
  • Galaxy S III
  • Galaxy Note 2

A California jury ruled that Samsung had violated Apple patents in a number of its mobile devices back in August and awarded Apple damages of $1 billion. Samsung has challenged that award, accusing the jury foreman of bias.
