Microsoft And Samsung Discuss Ending Their Patent Feud

By 05:32 Wed, 21 Jul 2021 Comments

According to a report in The Korea Times, Microsoft and Samsung have begun discussions to discontinue their patent feud. Earlier this month, the Redmond-based company took its Korean counterpart to court over patent royalty payments.

The main reason behind the two companies’ desire to avoid going to court is their willingness to continue their partnership. Microsoft needs Samsung to be a player in the Windows Phone field, while the Korean manufacturer aims for better licensing terms from Redmond.

The report goes on further to point that Samsung aims to slit a “comprehensive cross-licensing deal” with Microsoft. Such a scenario will not be the first time two industry heavyweights solve their issuer in such fashion – in 2012 HTC and Apple resolved their differences in similar fashion.
