Samsung on Apple Peace: "The Ball's in Their Court"

During their return in court over Apple's court case win that saw it being awarded $1.05 billion, Samsung has stressed that it's willing to call peace on their worldwide patent disputes, but it's up to the iPhone creator to decide.

"It's time for global peace," U.S. District Court's Lucy Koh told both companies, who was the judge presiding over the firm's court case back in August.

"Is there anything the court can do? I'm more than willing to issue orders," she continued. "It would be good for consumers, good for the industry, good for the parties."

Samsung attorney Charles Verhoeven agreed with Koh's comments, stressing that it's willing to settle with Apple. "We are willing. The ball's in their court," he said.

Despite Verhoeven's aforementioned comment, Samsung Mobile Chief J.K. Shin had previously stated that the South Korean technology conglomerate has no intentions of discussing a peace deal with Apple.
