Apple & Samsung Finally Settle Their Seven-Year-Long Patent Fight
One of the best-known cases that put the tech giant Apple and the South Korean giant Samsung face-to-face is several years old and focuses on the alleged copy of the iPhone’s design.
After many court meetings, judges’ decisions, appeals and even fines, the two largest companies now appear to have reached an agreement and the problem will finally be resolved.
This situation seems not to be normal, but finally, the tech giant Apple and the South Korean giant Samsung seem to have reached an agreement and the well-known process associated with using Apple’s patents and the copy of the design.
Started 7 years ago, the process has dragged on with various arguments, decisions, and appeals. The latest ruling was against Apple and charged a fine of $539 million to Samsung. This decision was eventually contested and everything pointed to another set of court sessions.
But according to Reuters, the two companies eventually succeeded in reaching an agreement, which will lead to this process ending immediately and without any further process.
What is not yet known, for lack of information about the agreement and the process, is the amount to pay that resulted from this agreement. Probably Samsung will have to meet part of the amount decided by the court earlier this month.
The tech giant Apple has already reacted to this agreement, emphasizing that it is their role to defend their ideas and their patents, leading those who violate their information to pay for it. The South Korean giant Samsung preferred to refer to the silence and did not comment on this agreement.
It seems that the end of one of the oldest processes that these two technology giants face has finally come to an end. After 7 years of a real battle between the tech giant Apple and the Sout Korean giant Samsung, everything turned out to be settled peacefully and out of court.
