Apple and Google are considering arbitration to reach a licensing agreement over standard essential patents, reports Bloomberg.

“Apple is also interested in resolving its dispute with Motorola completely and agrees that arbitration may be the best vehicle to resolve the parties’ dispute,” Apple said in a filing yesterday.

“We have long sought a path to resolving patent issues and we welcome the chance to build on the constructive dialogue between our companies,” Google General Counsel Kent Walker said in a Nov. 13 letter to Apple that was filed with the court. “While we prefer to seek a framework for a global (rather than piecemeal) resolution that addresses all of our patent disputes, we are committed to reaching agreement on a license for our respective standard-essential patents.”

Apple has claimed that Google/Motorola is misusing standard-essential patents to demand unreasonable royalties.

You are both wrong ! - Google has a capital of 212 Billion far more than your comment mentions. Also Google is not that retarded to let themselves be bought out by a rival company. Keep dreaming because that Shit will never happen in this life time.
