According to Korea Times, the legal battle between the tech giants of Apple and Samsung may be coming to an end. Of course we’ve seen that before, only to also watch it crash and burn, but according to the Korean news publication, both companies have resumed talks to settle patent disputes out of court and if all goes according to plan, will end the multi-year battle between the two companies as early as the end of summer. Both are discussing royalty payments and the possibility of cross-licensing to avoid future court battles.
This news does come of last week’s announcement that Apple would be dropping patent disputes with both Motorola and Google. Should the two companies come to an agreement in ending the great patent wars, this will bode a different direction for all companies involved as there are also discussions about a cease fire (cease litigation) for a certain period of time on future disputes.
