Samsung: We won’t settle patent suits with Apple

Updated

Though Apple and HTC have settled their patent dispute, Samsung claims that it will not do the same. Yonhap News Agency reports Samsung has no intentions on reaching an out-of-court settlement with Apple over its patent issues with the company. “It may be true that HTC may have agreed to pay 300 billion won ($276 million) to Apple, but we don’t intend to (negotiate) at all,” said Samsung mobile chief Jong-Kyun Shin. The two companies have been battling in various patent suits since April 2011.
