Apple and Samsung Slowly Start to Disarm Their Patent Nukes, Drop Numerous Claims Against Each Other

Even though the court-recommended talks between Samsung and Apple were supposed to start later this month, it seems the two companies have started pulling back a bit from their thermonuclear patent war. Monday, Apple filed to narrow their patent claims against Samsung to nearly half of what they originally were. Samsung responded hours later by shaving five claims off of their suit against Apple as well.

While this is a far cry from things being resolved, this might make it easier for the two to come to a complete settlement. If something is not agreed upon, the trial is set to go to court in July.

        There’s always “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the war room!”

    By Neptune’s trident, I hope this is true. If they can eventually get over this, think of all the money that could go to R&D, or advertising, or teaching Samsung to love (materials that aren’t plastic), or… well, anything that is not lawyers.
