Apple patent suits: Google arbitration talks; Samsung device additions

Apple and Google’s Motorola Mobility are discussing using binding arbitration as a possible resolution to their ongoing patent dispute, according to a court filing. Bloomberg reports the two companies have exchanged proposals relating to industry standard patents. It’s possible that a licensing agreement could pave the way to settling all patent disputes between Apple and Google. Apple recently settled its patent dispute with HTC.

Meanwhile, Samsung and Apple aren’t getting any closer to resolving their patent disputes. A recent statement by Samsung mobile chief Jong-Kyun Shin indicated the company won’t look to settle out of court, and U.S. magistrate judge Paul Grewel granted motions Thursday to include the iPhone 5, a number of Galaxy devices, and Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS in the ongoing Apple-Samsung lawsuit, CNET reports. The inclusion of Android 4.1 is restricted to use with the Galaxy Nexus smartphone.
