    Samsung Vows to Fight On; Has No Plans to Settle with Apple


    Despite HTC's recent settlement with Apple, Samsung recently issued a statement they have no plans to back down in their legal patent war with the clan from Cupertino. Here's a quote with the details,

    In an interview with Yonhap News, Shin Jong-kyun, head of Samsung’s mobile and IT division, revealed that the South Korean manufacturer doesn’t plan to follow HTC’s legal strategy and will instead continue to fight Apple in court.

    “It may be true that HTC may have agreed to pay 300 billion won (US$276 million) to Apple, but we don’t intend to (negotiate) at all,” he said.
    What do you think of this stance? Are you glad to see Samsung stand up against the bully of the tech world, or would you prefer them to work things out and focus on something else?

    I'm backing Sammy. Someone needs to continue to stand up to crapple and not back/bow down.

    Who cares, two Giant corporations in a pissing match, why do people get so personal about this crap, unless you are a shareholder or company employee of either company, then maybe yes, but if that is not the case, then I say, WHO CARES.

    Legal fights cost companies money, and that means funds are being redirected from other parts of the company that could improve products or keep prices down for end users such as ourselves.

    Anyone who uses (or intends to use) any of Samsung's products is essentially a shareholder in the corporation in the end.

    You are way off on all your arguments, do you really think the phone you buy will be cheaper because there us no litigation, lol, and no you are not a share holder because you buy a product from a company, you actually need to purchase $ stock.

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    True, but my smartphone has done WAY SO MUCH MORE for me than any sports team. If I had to pick between my smartphone and every sports team, professional, collegiate, and high school put together, there would be no competition. My smartphone wins.

    so you would like a company like apple to continue to patent ridiculous items and use that to stunt other companies innovations? and sue anything and everything that comes close to designing something similar to your product..
