Samsung is in discussions to settle with the European Union regulator regarding charges that the company blocked Apple from using an essential patent. In December, the European Commission informed Samsung it was unfair in seeking injunctions over the use of essential patents. Samsung has been discussing a settlement for months, according to a source.

Meanwhile, Apple has lost an appeal in Japan. Apple claimed Samsung infringed a patent regarding the synchronization of phone/tablet media files with servers, but the previous August ruling for Samsung was upheld, rejecting Apple’s infringement claim. [via Reuters, Bloomberg]
