Patents: Apple, Samsung can’t agree; Schiller to be witness

Updated

Apple CEO Tim Cook met with Samsung mobile chief JK Shin last week about settling the companies’ legal battle over intellectual property, but ZDNet Korea reports the executives failed to reach an agreement. There was a February 19 deadline for mediation talks; it’s unlikely any further negotiations will occur before that date. The two companies are expected to return to court next month, and Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller will be called to testify again, according to a report. Samsung may also call on former Apple SVP of iOS Software Scott Forstall to testify. [via The Verge, PC World]
