Samsung drops Apple patent lawsuits in Europe

Samsung drops all injunction cases against Apple in UK, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands. Samsung believes it is better to battle Apple on the mobile market. Let’s Hope Apple is the second wise men…

From Samsung:
“Samsung remains committed to licensing our technologies on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms, and we strongly believe it is better when companies compete fairly in the marketplace, rather than in court. In this spirit, Samsung has decided to withdraw our injunction requests against Apple on the basis of our standard essential patents pending in European courts, in the interest of protecting consumer choice.”

Apple’s biggest case in America is still going on. Apple could get 1 billion of dollars from Samsung. Apple said: Samsung copied our products and used a couple of patents from Apple without any kind of certification.

That’s the way to go, Samsung! Have Apple responded to this yet, if yes, can anyone tell me what they responded? :)

Dropping charges and bringing out the “let’s fight this competition on the market instead of the courtroom” announcement is a win for Samsung…Even more because Apple failed to respond up untill today… :-)

This would be great if only Apple would do the same but alas with their market share dropping due to a greater Android share and the way that Apple are going about things then I can’t see them doing the same because they will then lose another stream of income.

The statement does not mention anything about lawsuits! They are just withdrawing the request for ban on the sale of apple products
