Tim Cook to Meet with Samsung CEO For Patent Settlement Talks

Apple and Samsung have been dishing out patent suits towards each other for quite some time. It seems like every week or so there’s one more battle struck up over someone stealing a patent. Honestly, it’s like two little babies fighting over toys in a playroom…

Recently, U.S. Judge Lucy Koh has ordered Apple CEO Tim Cook and Samsung CEO Gee-Sung Choi to stop bickering, and suing each other for once and just sit down to talk it out.

FOSS Patents reports that Apple and Samsung have made a statement to the court and have decided on a battle to the death. Just kidding.

The two CEOs actually decided to have a meeting for an Alternative Dispute Resolution (or ADR):

As directed by the Court, Apple and Samsung are both willing to participate in a Magistrate Judge Settlement Conference with Judge Spero as mediator. At Apple, the chief executive officer and general counsel are the appropriate decision-makers, and they will represent Apple during the upcoming settlement discussions. At Samsung, the chief executive officer and general counsel are also the appropriate decision-makers, and they will represent Samsung during these settlement discussions.

FOSS Patents doesn’t think much will come from this meeting, and quite honestly neither do I… They have been in shouting matches over the past years and this probably isn’t going to resolve anything. But who knows…

If things end up going south, I vote for a cage fighting match!

    589036 703214The subsequent time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this 1. I mean, I know it was my option to read, but I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear can be a bunch of whining about something which you possibly can repair need to you werent too busy on the lookout for attention. 665013
