Samsung unlikely to compromise with Apple in patent disputes

Apple and Google are discussing arbitration procedures that could mark the beginning of the end of their long-running war over smartphone patents but Samsung Electronics will not seek a compromise with Apple over their disputes, according to market analysts.

Seoul-based industry analyst Thomas Kang said Thursday that the patent war will continue for the time being.

“There is no way Samsung in the current situation will compromise like HTC did considering its market share and its optimistic expansion outlook going forward,” Kang said.

“As times go by, the situation becomes more and more unfavorable to Apple. Innovations are constantly happening in the mobile industry, and because of that, the innovations led by Apple have disappeared. The value of Apple’s patents will lose luster as times go by.”
