Apple, Samsung in patent settlement talks after Google-Apple deal

Apple and Samsung have resumed talks aimed at settling the company’s ongoing patent disputes out of court, The Korea Times reports. “Samsung has recently resumed working-level discussions with Apple and the key issue is how to dismiss all lawsuits,” a source said.

One reason to believe Apple is willing to settle comes from the company’s recent settlement with Google’s Motorola Mobility unit on their respective patent issues, notes Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents. Apple and Google released a statement late on Friday stating that they’ve settled current patent litigation, but the settlement does not include cross-licensing of each other’s patents, Reuters reports. “Apple and Google have also agreed to work together in some areas of patent reform,” the statement said.
