Apple And Samsung Settle Longstanding Patent Dispute

This is what smartphones looked like before the iPhone

The settlement comes weeks after a U.S. jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $539 million in damages for copying features of the original iPhone.

The news follows Apple winning a United States dollars 539 million jury award against Samsung in May in a retrial over damages stemming from their original lawsuit in federal court in San Jose, California, which ended with a USD 1.05 billion verdict against Samsung.

Apple triumphed on paper but it was deficient in its goal to acquire a fierce benefit over Samsung and other phone makers in succession of lawsuits against them said Mr. Love and Michael A. Carrier, a professor at Rutgers Law School who studies patent law.

Apple (AAPL) and Samsung Electronics have reached a settlement in their USA patent battle, putting an end to a seven-year fight over smartphone designs.

Apple has previously said that its goal in taking Samsung to court wasn't about money but rather about protecting its homegrown innovations.

"Plaintiff Apple Inc. and Defendants Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Samsung Electronics America, Inc., and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC would like to inform the Court that they have agreed to drop and settle their remaining claims and counterclaims in this matter", the settlement notice stated.

England win over Panama attracts peak TV audience of 14.1 million
But there would be precious few chances - and even less goodwill - after Panama's tactics cost them in the eighth minute. Panama , which offered little resistance, is leaving the tournament early after being eliminated along with Tunisia.

Last month, a California jury determined that the size of the reward should be $539 million, a decision that raised objections from Samsung. This year a jury set out to decide if Samsung owed Apple $1 billion for the infringement or a "measly" $28 million.

As part of an earlier verdict, it was determined that Samsung infringed on three of Apple's iPhone design patents. This led the South Korean tech giant to countersue the Cupertino, California-headquartered Apple in the same year. Luckily it seems that neither company is interested in seeing the case through until the end, moving on to bigger, better and more innovative smartphone designs than we've seen before. Terms of the settlement were not made public, according to Reuters.
