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.
thank you, for not letting Samsung show its F700 to the jury.
Mr Steve J. prmised to spend last penny on "thermonuclear" war on Android. So guess what are the chances.
In other news, in UK Apple had to publicly apologize for what your court awarded Apple more than a billion of "damages".
Pretty much every case worldwide, Apple has lost. And yet only in the USA do they win, and it's under very curious circumstances.
Jury Foreman lying to cover up obvious biases he would have, devices Samsung has to pay for infringing even though the Jury even said they didn't.
I say the Foreman be arrested for lying in court and the Judge be disbarred.
So, Take a popcorn and lets wait for the case to move to Federal Appeal court.
I'm all for competition, but I'm not sure these law suits are really competition. Good competition is producing the best product you can for a price people are willing to buy it at. If the lawsuits are really legit, that's one thing, but if they aren't, then the company that brings the suit should be in for possible sanctions and fines.
The judge is right on this: customers are sick of the lawsuits. I think this is hurting Apple more than Samsung.
