Apple is demanding that Samsung Electronics pay it $380 million for copying vital iPhone and iPad features.

An Apple attorney made the demand Wednesday during opening statements of a Silicon Valley patent trial. A previous jury already has concluded that 26 Samsung products copied Apple's scrolling function, iPhone design and other features. That jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion.

But a judge ruled that jury miscalculated damages for 13 of those products and tossed out $400 million of the verdict and ordered a new trial, which began Tuesday with jury selection. The jury is tasked only with fixing a damage amount.

The current trial is expected to last a week.
