Apple Samsung shadow

The CEOs of Apple and Samsung are scheduled to meet on or before February 19th, in the latest attempt to bring an end to the wide-ranging, global legal battle between the two tech giants.

Tim Cook of Apple and Oh-Hyun Kwon of Samsung will meet along with in-house lawyers to try and find a way to end the dispute over patent infringement.

The battle between the companies has been raging for over two years. Apple has won key cases in the United States, with Samsung ordered to pay $290 million in damages last November. The Korean company also lost a case against Apple in its home territory last month.

A new case is set to get underway in California in March, where Apple is expected to argue Samsung copied a string of patents for devices not covered in previous hearings.

The court filing which revealed the planned meeting said that the two sides had already met to ‘discuss settlement opportunities’ on January 6th. With key victories in recent months, it’s highly likely that Apple would be on the receiving end of a hefty payout from Samsung.
