Don’t get deceived by its countersuit withdrawal
Samsung’s withdrawal of countersuit against Apple is seen as a step to consolidating its position in other lawsuits.
Samsung had countersued Apple on April accusing the Cupertino tech giant of infringing on a total of ten patents in three different countries. Now this countersuit has been withdrawn by Samsung.
Experts say this move by Samsung should not be seen as a sign of surrender, though. Samsung is looking forward to streamline legal battle to focus on the vast array of suits and countersuits against Apple around the world. Samsung is already suing Apple in eight different courts.
The outcome of these legal wars could be crucial to Samsung, as it has been suffering losses for two consecutive quarters. Interestingly, Apple is the biggest consumer for Samsung and these issues have made Apple to find new partner.
