Qualcomm, Intel give Apple code in Samsung patent trial

Both Qualcomm and Intel have provided U.S. lawyers with source code that an Apple attorney claims will help it in its ongoing patent dispute with Samsung. Bloomberg reports that the code in question will be used in an Australia trial between the two companies; in the trial, Samsung accuses Apple of infringing on patents related to wireless transmissions, which the source code may absolve them of doing. “Further non-infringing arguments can be made” from disclosure of the source code, Apple lawyer Andrew Fox said at a hearing in Sydney. The trial between Apple and Samsung—in which both companies accuse one another of infringing patents—is scheduled to begin July 9 and run through October 12.
