Apple and Samsung have done something agreeable to one another – by filing motions that offered the reduction in the number of asserted patent claims by up to 50%. The whole idea of doing so would be to ensure that the proposed July 30 trial date remains on track as both companies’ first US lawsuit over their mobile device patent disputes kick off. Apple maintains their stand that Samsung is but a “copycat,” although the South Korean conglomerate says that Apple is actually trying to pummel the opposition into submission through litigation.
When Judge Lucy Koh informed both Apple and Samsung that the number of asserted claims was just too much to handle, following it up with the suggestion for the number of claims to be reduced significantly, it seems that both companies are dancing to Koh’s tune, and hopefully we will be able to see an end to the long drawn courtroom drama. In fact, Apple recently picked up a victory against Samsung by getting sanctions against the latter, so it would be interesting to see how the courtroom events will pan out when July 30th rolls around.
