Hoping to end the bitter feud between Apple and Samsung, their respective CEOs have agreed to meet in the coming months with the hope of settling their patent-differences.

 

Samsung’s Gee-Sung Choi (CEO) and Apple’s Tim Cook (CEO) are to convene before a judge in a bid to settle their patent-fuelled differences within the next 90 days. The court-date has been ordered by Judge Lucy Koh according to a Foss Patents report.

“The parties have indicated that they are willing to participate in a Magistrate Judge Settlement Conference,” said Judge Koh.

“Therefore, the parties are hereby referred to an MJSC with Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero with a 90-day deadline.”

Judge Koh hopes the settlement conference will help the two companies come to an agreement, ultimately settling their legal qualms before trials commence in July.

Samsung provides Apple with many of the components featured in its products; a business agreement estimated at $8 billion per year.

However, Apple has alleged some of Samsung’s products (Galaxy SII, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9) are “slavish imitations” that violate Apple’s patents. The accusation has since sparked litigation in courts scattered across nine different countries.
