Techgiganterne dropper now patent war in several countries, but nevertheless continues the war in American courtrooms.
We have repeatedly heard rumors that the conflicting techgiganter Apple and Samsung is working to reach a consensus on the patents. So far the negotiations have gone into the sink.
Now informs both parties however, to Bloomberg, that they have chosen to drop patent charges against each other, and that the charges lapses in countries Australia, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Netherlands, England, France and Italy.
So far there is not drawn up any licensing agreements between Apple and Samsung, so we must not consider peace to finally quite yet.
“Apple and Samsung have agreed to drop all litigation between the two companies outside the United States,” the companies said in the statement. “This agreement does not imply any license schemes and companies continue to pursue existing cases in us courts.”
If nothing else, it is gratifying that Apple and Samsung now can finally bury the patent dispute, but we are celebrating not peace sooner than that same trend happening on American soil and that licensing systems are in place. Of course we are following the matter here on our site.
