Apple, Samsung settle epic patent infringement battle
Updated : June 28, 2018 08:37 PM IST
In a filing at a district court in San Jose, California, late on Wednesday, the two tech giants notified the judge that that "they have agreed to drop and settle their remaining claims and counterclaims in this matter".
"Apple ignited the smartphone revolution with iPhone and it is a fact that Samsung blatantly copied our design. It is important that we continue to protect the hard work and innovation of so many people at Apple," the iPhone maker said in a statement.
Samsung was given the $539 million penalty in May as it was found infringing on five patents with Android phones it sold in 2010 and 2011.
