Cook met with Samsung mobile division chief J.K. Shin to discuss a possible settlement, but did not make any significant progress towards a deal.
The second patent infringement lawsuit between Apple and Samsung is set to begin on March 31, as Apple’s Chief of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller will be among the witnesses. Samsung will only have four patents claims to bring to the upcoming trial, as Judge Koh invalidated two of its patent claims last month.
Samsung on the ropes? No. Patent trial losses have had no impact on Samsung’s illegal activities. The courts are powerless and Apple becomes a victim. Again.
