SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Silicon Valley jurors are still deciding how much Samsung Electronics owes Apple for copying key features of the iPhone and iPad.

They will begin a third day of deliberations Thursday in a San Jose federal courtroom after deliberating all day Wednesday.

A previous jury found Samsung guilty of infringing several Apple patents. This jury is to determine damages only.

Apple is demanding $380 million. Samsung argues it only owes $52 million.

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh on Wednesday also refused Samsung's request to halt the trial after U.S. patent regulators questioned the validity of one of Apple's patents that Samsung was found to have infringed.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office told Apple on Wednesday that its arguments in support of a patent for the pinch-to-zoom function on iPhones and iPads "are not persuasive."
