End the war? Apple and Samsung may terminate litigation

Courts and scandals
Apple Samsung

Everything passes, and it will pass … Even patent opposition Samsung and Apple. According to Reuters, the head of rival companies agreed to participate in the mediation procedure and consider options for reconciliation.

Official meeting should be held before February 19, 2014, but the exact date of the meeting has not yet announced.

It became known from the documents submitted to the court: the legal representatives of the warring parties, discussing mutual claims January 6, formally agreed to consider the possibility of a peaceful settlement. If in the course of mediation Apple and Samsung will come to an agreement that satisfies both, they no longer have to return to the issue (new hearing in the case of patent infringement are scheduled for March 31).

However, this does not seem the most likely scenario: CEOs sat down at the negotiating table before, but have not been able to make a deal.

Recall that in 2012 the court ruled that Samsung illegally used the objects of intellectual property rights , and Apple should pay more than a billion dollars compensation. Then the amount was reduced because the damage caused by the criminal actions of the South Korean manufacturer, has been revised. In Cupertino disagreed with the decision and began to re-trial, the results of which Apple has received 290 million . In general, the American side managed to seize 930 million. And that, apparently, is not the limit: another lawsuit will be considered in the spring.
