In an unsurprising turn of events, the meeting between the CEOs of Apple and Samsung at the request of the court failed to achieve its desired purpose, as the two companies couldn’t come to an agreement. The meeting was attended by Apple’s CEO Tim Cook and Samsung’s CEO Choi Gee-sung and head of the mobile division, Shin Jong-kyun and lasted for nine hours on Monday and seven hours on Tuesday. It was presided by Judge Joseph C. Spero and took place at the request of U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh last month.
Apple is currently suing Samsung for copying their designs and to get Samsung’s products off the market whereas Samsung is suing Apple for using their wireless technology patents and asking Apple to pay royalties. This meeting was held in the hopes of the two companies forming an agreement but that did not happen.
We hope you haven’t got tired of these court battles because they aren’t going to stop any time soon.
