Samsung: We're Not Backing Down from Apple LitigationBrian Barrett11/14/12 9:03amFiled to: SamsungAppleLawsuitsPatentsCore24EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink If your heart grew two sizes when Apple and HTC decided to settle their patent disputes with money instead of lawyers (or guns?), prepare for shrinkage. When asked if Samsung would follow suit—or lack thereof—its mobile head, J.K. Shin, gave an emphatic no. To the jousting field!It's not like anyone expected Samsung to forgo its legal battles; it can afford the fight better than HTC can, for one thing, and also already has so much invested in it that it may as well double down. Besides, in a lot of countries—Japan and the Netherlands, specifically—it's winning. There are lawsuits in 10 countries still being contested. Why give up now?
