Apple and Samsung end patent disputes outside of the United States

Apple and Samsung recently agreed to withdraw all pending patent and registered design disputes between their companies in all countries except the United States. This includes disputes in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia, Japan and South Korea.

Before the summer, Apple entered into a similar agreement with competitor Google/Motorola, in which connection it was agreed that they would end all patent disputes worldwide.

In the United States the disputes between Apple and Samsung will continue.
