Apple is ready to “absolve» Samsung for $ 30 each sold smartphone
The protracted patent war between Apple and Samsung is gaining new momentum. As reported by Korean sources, the two companies are now trying to settle the lawsuit at the negotiating table. Was initiated by the South Korean industrial giant, who offered Apple to sign a cross-licensing agreement. Response from Cupertino did not have long to wait. Apple has claimed Samsung’s royalty of $ 30 from each sold smartphone and $ 40 from each plate sold.
Of course, Samsung to such demands are not accepted. Analyst Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents believes that Samsung has a clear advantage in the smartphone market over the rest of the first-tier manufacturers and their pride is a major obstacle to the “puffing peace pipes.”
“For Apple agreement, under which the company will get a few dollars for each unit sold Samsung, has little strategic sense. It needs a deal that will have a huge impact on the market share of the South Korean giant. On this, Samsung can not go. It’s not about the money. In a deal between Apple and HTC is made mainly focus on the impossibility of cloning developments Cupertino. In other words, Apple in any case be able to file for HTC to court if the products will see the Taiwanese manufacturer plagiarism. ”
It is unlikely that Apple will not insist on signing a similar agreement with Samsung. Even more unlikely that Samsung will agree and will want to step over the pride and modify its strategic considerations.
Recall that not long ago the International Trade Commission United States (ITC) in its decision to the United States banned the import smartphones iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 as well as tablets iPad (3G), iPad 2 (3G) and the iPad 3 is intended for use in networks AT & T, due to copyright infringement by Samsung. In Cupertino appealed to President Barack Obama that the right to lift the ban ITC. The decision will be made on August 4 this year.
Florian stressed that the final appeal, which will be addressed in the next few weeks, the U.S. Court of Appeals of federal jurisdiction is the apogee of ‘great strategic battle. ” If the court will be on the way to Apple, it will be able to get a ban on the import of Samsung products in the U.S..
