Samsung abandons Patent-Infringement lawsuit against Apple

According to Bloomberg, Samsung has just dropped their patent-infringement suit against Apple here in the U.S. on June 30th. The reason behind this legal move was so that the Korean phone manufacturer can “streamline the legal proceedings.”

This, of course, doesn’t mean that Samsung is letting its guards down against Apple. Nam Ki Yung, a Samsung spokesman, claims that the Seoul-based phone manufacturer will defend its itself “through the counter-claim that was filed back in April.

“Samsung will continue to actively defend and protect our intellectual property

Samsung and Apple are currently still going through legal battles in Germany, Japan, UK, U.S., and South Korea. We sure hope that Steve Jobs will grow up and accepts the fact that other companies such as Samsung can make better phones than the iPhone.
