Apple and Samsung Chiefs Met in Unsuccessful Attempt to Work Out Patent Spats

Apple and Samsung Chiefs Met in Unsuccessful Attempt to Work Out Patent Spats

Apple CEO Tim Cook, and Samsung’s mobile chief Shin Jong-Kyun are reported to have met last week in an attempt to hammer out an agreement to end the long-running patent battles between the two firms, but to no avail.



Samsung would not confirm the outcome of the meeting or if it actually took place, according to ZDNet Korea. A U.S. court had ordered the two parties to meet and discuss a settlement in advance of a new trial set to start next month.

The session was scheduled to take place by February 19th, after lawyers from both sides met on January 6th to work out a framework for the session. Counsel for both firms were allowed to attend the meeting. (Which could explain why nothing was settled. – Ed.)

This was not the first meeting between executives of Apple and Samsung, as Cook has previously met with Shin and Samsung Vice Chairman Choi Gee-sung in July of 2012, just ahead of the Apple v. Samsung court case that resulted in Apple being awarded nearly $1 billion for Samsung’s infringement of Apple’s intellectual property.

A new trial is set to kickoff March 31st. The two companies will attempt to settle disputes over newer devices, such as the Apple iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S III.
