Apple, Samsung agree to end non-US patent suits

Apple and Samsung have agreed to drop all patent suits against each other outside of the U.S., Bloomberg reports. A joint statement issued by the two companies confirms that ongoing claims in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, South Korea, and the U.K. are all being abandoned. Although it appears the two companies may finally be scaling down their patent battle, with no cross-licensing agreement reached, it may only be a matter of time before it picks up again. Both companies will continue to pursue the existing cases in the U.S., and it’s unlikely those conflicts will end any time soon.
