Apple and Samsung Drop Some Lawsuits Against Each Other

Posted May 8, 2012

Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Inc. have dropped a large number of copyright infringement claims against each other. However the companies are still arguing about whether or not Samsung blatantly copied off Apple.

According to FOSS Patents:

Late on Monday by local time, Apple made a filing in its first California litigation with Samsung that offers a truly impressive narrowing of its infringement claims in that action, roughly cutting them in half, and five hours later, Samsung offered to drop five of its 12 asserted patents but argued that Apple?s case is still far too big to go to trial this summer. Apple?s filing accused Samsung of being uncooperative in the build-up to these filings, but Samsung puts all the blame on Apple and says the case still isn?t ready for a summer trial.
