Disputes are to be referred for arbitration to the International Centre for Dispute Resolution
Apple is seeking to add six Samsung products in a patent infringement lawsuit between the electronic giants scheduled to start in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in March 2014.
Samsung Electronics has asked a California court to compel Apple to produce a copy of its settlement and patent license agreement with HTC, claiming the document is relevant to its own patent dispute with Apple.
A California court has allowed Samsung Electronics to include Apple's iPhone 5 among the products alleged to have infringed its patents, while also letting Apple amend its infringement contentions to include the Jelly Bean operating system and newer Samsung products such as the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the U.S. version of the Galaxy S III.
Samsung Electronics said Wednesday it has no plan to settle its ongoing patent disputes with Apple
A court in California will consider Samsung Electronics' concern that the foreman of the jury deciding a patent infringement lawsuit between Apple and Samsung had concealed relevant information.
Samsung's Galaxy devices don't infringe on an Apple multitouch patent that describes technology that prevents smartphone users from pushing two on-screen buttons at the same time, the Court of the Hague ruled on Wednesday. The technique used in Android is sufficiently different from Apple's patent, the judge said.
A California jury may have awarded Apple more than US$1 billion in damages in late August when it triumphed over Samsung in a hard-fought case over smartphone and tablet patents, but the iPhone maker is coming back for more: late on Friday it asked for additional damages of $707 million.
