Samsung Drops Patent Lawsuit Against Apple in U.S.

Bomi Lim, reporting for Bloomberg:

Samsung Electronics dropped the suit on June 30 “to streamline the legal proceedings,” Nam Ki Yung, a spokesman for the Suwon, South Korea-based company, said today in a telephone interview. Samsung will continue to defend its patent rights through a counter-claim in an earlier suit Apple filed at the same court in San Jose, California, he said.

And on the flip side: “Apple Files Motion for Preliminary Injunction in the U.S. Against Four Samsung Products: Infuse 4G, Galaxy S 4G, Droid Charge, Galaxy Tab 10.1”.
