    Sense at last - Samsung / Apple drop all Lawsuits

    Hi there

    Must be a bad day for the Lawyers - but for everybody else some sense at last -- maybe these two great corporations can get back to doing what they are good at doing - creating decent products a lot of us like to have.

    Apple and Samsung drop all law suits outside US_

    Can't understand it -- there seems to be TOO MUCH SENSE taking place in some of these organisations -- it can't really last -- can it ?

    Sorry but you completely misinterpreted the article. The only reason why the dumped all the lawsuits outside the US is the fact that there is no money in it. European courts do not adjudge huge amounts like US courts do. If you sue someone in Europe for patent infringement you will probably get a few thousand, maybe hundred thousand $ but that's it. In US lawsuits lies the real money, there you can be granted hundreds of millions of $ if not billions. And those lawsuits are explicitely excluded in the article you linked. So in reality nothing has changed at all.
