Apple and Samsung in Talks to Settle Patent Disputes Outside of Court

Posted by · 5264 views · Translate
Apple and Samsung are reportedly in talks to have all future patent disputes settled outside of court, reports Kim Yoo-chul, a senior Samsung watcher at the Korea Times. This news comes just a few days after Google and Apple agreed to drop all of their lawsuits against each other.

Samsung has recently resumed working-level discussions with Apple and the key issue is how to dismiss all lawsuits, one source said, declining to be named.

In 2012, a jury awarded Apple with more than $1 billion in damages for Samsung's patent infringements, however that amount was later reduced to $930 million. Just last month a second trial awarded Apple with $120 million, but it had to pay Samsung $158,000 for its own patent infringements.

Foss Patents Florian Mueller believes things should begin wrapping up soon.

Things should come to an end during the summer, Apple doesn't have an endgame strategy. Its agreement with Google shows that its management is looking for a face-saving exit strategy from Steve Jobs' thermonuclear ambitions that were based on a totally unrealistic assessment of the strength of Apple's patent portfolio.

Jury awarded ? Yes it was award only. USS court supports US company and getting award for them from different companies and make them grow. Appple scared of future verdicts as even they had to pay for infringements recently ( it was supposed to be huge amount but jury AWARDED there also, charged small amount just to fool the public) . They know the next ones are going to be big (cause i6 going to be full of copy. lol) and they don't get much support from court as before. GREAT ESCAPE

Something that gets awarded gets scared? What sense does it make delusioned defensive? Why would apple be afraid of something they won on so many levels? The only shit afraid here is you not admitting truths the way it's said. If samshit lost then they need to rethink their strategy as much as you need to. It's they like they lose over a race then you're all like "ooh it was apples plan". If you think you can just waltz the wannabe ass here than explain why apple is afraid. The only escape here is apple from being scolded. Go get samshits wang out of that black hold leading yo sheep galaxy. I bet they're crawling back where they belong.

lol. Clean your specs and Read what I wrote properly first. I said those awards were a drama between court and appple. Samsung was supposed to be won but judge were in favor of appple. So now judges not supporting them and they copy heavily for future devices. So obviously they know they would be caught.

How about scrubbing the rust off your brain again so it's easy for more smart assholes to understand your gibberish bull shit. There is a reason they don't get fooled by a defensive delsuioned shit like you, you'll just use us as an example just to make us sound like shit, it's like saying you can't understand teaching works when you try to learn shit your way like you're Mr. Knowitall like right now. Samshit didn't win because the jd power award clearly explains why apple won, so why would the judge listen to ignoranting fcks like you if there are more smart asses on my side who always get facts straight, with that said and done, CASE CLOSED, the judge doesn't listen to copy cats aka copy pussies in the first place, who want to believe such mind fooling toy makers that always steal what apple makes (fingerprint scanner, 64but support, front face camera when iPhone first got it, s voice inspired from Siri, etc.) but no, you just do anything to stay in your galaxy of myths. Story of your fcking life.
