Apple Samsung Patent Lawsuits

Samsung’s mobile boss JK Shin on Sunday confirmed to reporters that the South Korea-based consumer electronics giant is making new efforts to end its patent war with Apple. While Shin did admit that there is still much work to be done, he said there are a number of possible resolutions that the companies will consider. “There is still a big gap in the patent war with Apple but we still have several negotiation options including cross-licensing,” Shin told reporters at the Seoul airport while waiting to board a flight to the United States with Samsung CEO Choi Gee-sung, Reuters reports. Samsung and Apple are scheduled to meet today in an effort to take the first steps toward putting an end to the costly patent battles the companies have been fighting in dozens of courts around the world.
