Samsung-Apple war continues
Published: May 25, 2012
Global – The two-day meeting between Samsung and Apple to settle their copyright disputes came to an end with no concrete resolutions made.
According to various news agencies, Apple had insisted Samsung had replicated its product designs, while Samsung demanded for royalties to be paid for Apple's use of its wireless transmission technology.
An official spokesperson from Samsung confirmed with The Korea Times that no settlement deal came to pass.
The negotiation effort was brought on by the court, insisting both tech giants attempt to reach a resolution before heading to trial. Both CEOs met in San Francisco for sixteen hours to reach a resolution, AFP reported.
Both parties will be going to court in July to commence legal trials.
The smartphone rivals have been in legal battles since April 2011 and have since faced lawsuits in nine countries.
