Recently Apple and HTC announced a settlement between their patent dispute. Following that announcement, a Samsung executive has hinted at that the company has no intention of agreeing to a similar deal. In a conversation with Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, Shin Jong-kyun, the head of Samsung’s mobile and IT division said that the company does not intend to negotiate “at all.”
“We have no such intention,” J.K. Shin, the head of Samsung Electronics’ mobile unit, told reporters on Wednesday when asked if Samsung would seek a similar settlement.
Samsung and Apple have engaged in a number of lawsuits in multiple countries around the world. In August, Apple saw its biggest victory against Samsung when a jury in California ruled that Samsung had violated Apple’s patented inventions. The jury suggested that Samsung should be required to pay Apple nearly $1.05 billion in damages.
