Apple against Samsung: This Is All That Has Happened So Far

Costs me to believe, but the tireless legal “scuffle” between Samsung and Apple It has been present in half of all my time as editor in Applesfera. Little me I thought that what started as a lawsuit would follow present day, even though we have the good news of the agreement to stop fighting outside the United States Patent.

It is worthwhile to look back and Let’s look at what has happened, to have a more global view of all the movements that Samsung and Apple have done so much for trying to make peace with the objective of earning profits and harm each other.

2011: the best defense is a good offense

  • April 18, 2011: the start. Apple launches a demand to Samsung which clearly accused the Asian company all copiable iPhone copy and move it to their smartphones in order to get more sales. Thus starts a war that still has not seen end even with agreements of manufacturing components that both companies have each other.
  • May 29, 2011: seeing that the company’s legal future darkens, Samsung claims Apple to access the new iPhone and iPad until they put on the market in order thus to prepare for any motion or demand that is released from Cupertino. Of course Apple ignored. A month later, Apple even consider robbing Samsung rights of its A4 chip manufacturing.
  • August 10, 2011: first serious consequences for Samsung. Apple Gets a court order so that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 can not be sold in Europe for a month at a minimum. A week later, it was discovered that Apple could have modified the original Samsung Tablet measures to make more arguments in their favor in the lawsuit.
  • August 23, 2011: Foul play has not done more to start. Samsung defends Apple demand saying that the company was inspired by the 2001 film tablets: a space Odyssey.
  • on September 21, 2011: Revenge! Samsung wants to block sales of the iPhone 5 in Europe to return the blow of the blockade of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
  • September 30, 2011: First attempt at agreement: Samsung proposes Apple to close the patent disputes. Apple rejects that a week later and still wanting to go to court.
  • October 5, 2011: Samsung, therefore, is trying to block sales of the iPhone 4S in Italy and France. Hours after learning this, the eternal nemesis of Android Steve Jobs succumbed to his cancer and died.
  • October 15, 2011: Ill come for Samsung, which sees as courts in Australia and Holland give reason to Apple regarding the copy of your devices.

2012: the drubbing for Samsung

  • 11 February 2012: the new year began with a warning from the Department of competences of the European Union: the body warned the technology that a misuse of patents would have consequences.
  • 20 April 2012: Begin meetings between the CEOs of Apple and Samsung to try to settle all legal battles once and for all. It is a first attempt would fail a month later.
  • 27 June 2012: More shows of force, with an Apple that manages to block sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the United States. At that same time, an English judge said that Apple products “are not molaban both” to give him reason to your demands.
  • 21 August 2012: a new attempt to sit down and talk about that he fails. The thing doesn’t seem to have end of time, but for other issues such as Kodak patents there alliances.

Tim Cook took the reins of the dispute in 2012, but with the failures in negotiations almost not noticed is

  • August 25, 2012: Verdict! Samsung is condemned to pay an initial $ 1,000 million figure to Apple for violating their patents. Later, that figure would decline. But Tim Cook already presumed this to their employees.
  • September 13, 2012: This would not be so. Samsung allying with HTC to try to block sales of the iPhone 5 for breach of patent.
  • October 15, 2012: Apple makes it clear that increasingly wants to depend less of Samsung to manufacture components. That led to both companies decide to abandon any Alliance.
  • December 6, 2012: Samsung filters to the public the agreement that Apple and HTC had achieved a month earlier, in which were agreed to stop fighting by patents.

2013 and 2014: towards a tense peace

  • on January 30, 2013: It was unintentionally! The California judge Lucy Koh statement that Samsung violated Apple patents, but did not on purpose.
  • on April 11, 2013: It is known that Samsung will not manufacture Apple chip A7, leaving him without a good source of income. But in a few months, it is revealed that it would manufacture “A9” processor from Samsung factories.
  • on December 18, 2013: Finally, will be Samsung and TSMC which will share is the next Apple chip manufacturing.
  • on December 31, 2013: Apple and Samsung agree to again talk to try to solve all their disputes. That would include a new meeting between its CEOs later, which also would fail.
  • on May 12, 2014: Little by little, agreements such as the manufacture of screens for the iPad by Samsung are beginning to reappear.
  • on June 24, 2014: Samsung is condemned to pay a million dollars more to Apple by filtering a series of internal documents from Cupertino.
  • on August 6, 2014: Finally, becomes the first major agreement to abandon disputes by non-U.S. patents. Will it be the start of something?

Now what?

Let us not delude ourselves: Samsung and Apple are facing each other in many things. But over time, and as new manufacturing agreements have appeared, it is clear that the benefits that can be achieved both companies working together stand out above any battle. Even so, there are still struggles in American courts. And I suspect that they will not be brief.

It also depends on any new charges that companies can release, of course. But seeing that Apple has been with most victories, I do not think that Samsung enter you most desire to continue racing this way iOS devices. Question of take a good bowl of popcorn and enjoy the show.
