Earlier this month Microsoft sued Samsung over patents that are used by Samsung in their Android devices, Microsoft alleged that Samsung had failed to pay Microsoft their agreed patent licensing fees.
Back in 2011 Samsung agreed to pay Microsoft fees relating to patents used by Google’s Android OS, Microsoft has agreements with a wide range of companies for Android patents, which include HTC, ZTE, Acer and more.
Now according to a recent report, Samsung and Microsoft are apparently in talks to come to an agreement that would out an end to the legal action that Microsoft started earlier in the month.
Samsung and Microsoft are reported to have resumed ‘working level discussions’ which would let the two companies come to an agreement and see the lawsuit dismissed.
Both Samsung and Microsoft have declined to comment on whether the two companies are in discussions to put and end to the lawsuit, and no agreement has been reached as yet.
It will be interesting to see if the two companies can sort out their differences, and reach an agreement so that the court case does not have to proceed, as soon as we get any more details we will let you guys know.
