This is part of an article I saw in the Korea Times a few days ago:
Samsung is fighting Apple in eight different courts in six countries, although it partially dropped the lawsuit against Apple in California.
Apple had sued Samsung in April, alleging that Samsung had copied the look and feel of the iPhone and iPad.
The iPhone maker had also filed for a preliminary injunction that would block the sale of Samsung’s products while the case is being resolved.
``The one clear point is that Samsung is firm about getting royalties from Apple in return for using our various telecom-related technologies,’’ said another source, asking not to be identified citing sensitivity of the issue.
``Although Apple is diversifying its procurement channels for key parts such as telecommunication chips, flat-screens and mobile applications to Taiwan and Japan-based firms, Samsung is still a very crucial supplier for Apple that Apple should not lose,’’ said a top-ranking industry executive.http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news...129_90641.html
