Apple, Samsung CEOs to Meet Regarding Patents
The leaders of both Apple and Samsung have agreed to meet one another next month to discuss settling their on-going patent battles. They are scheduled to enter the courtroom in March anew concerning a second batch of patents. The meeting will be an attempt to settle their differences amicably ahead of that trial. The two companies have faced one another countless times over patents during the course of the last few years. Apple has won about $930 million in damages from Samsung already. The trial scheduled for March is an entirely new case, however, and will likely drag out for months if the companies can't agree to terms.
