According to a report from FOSS patents, Apple and Samsung are in talks about their ongoing patent disputes. Both companies have been suing the pants off of each other for the past year or so as they argue over who stole ideas from whom.
According to FOSS patents, they are duking it out in the courtroom across nine countries. However, the courts want them to play nice, and have ordered them to try to settle their dispute. Here’s part of Samsung’s statement:
“As directed by the Court, Apple and Samsung are both willing to participate in a Magistrate Judge Settlement Conference with Judge Spero as mediator. At Apple, the chief executive officer and general counsel are the appropriate decision-makers, and they will represent Apple during the upcoming settlement discussions. At Samsung, the chief executive officer and general counsel are also the appropriate decision-makers, and they will represent Samsung during these settlement discussions.”
