Samsung Backs out: Drops Apple countersuit

Just a few weeks back we had heard that Apple  sued Samsung at their home ground in South Korea, and we expected Samsung to fight back by another law Suit against Apple, but Samsung took a different route this time, they dropped the counter-suit against Apple of about 10 claims.

Samsung gave out official word that they will be dropping the countersuit “to streamline the legal proceedings.” This does not mean that Apple has backed out, they will still be fighting lawsuits in South Korea, Japan, Germany and UK. Though the infringement claims made by Samsung against Apple still will be continued as counter-claims in the original lawsuit.
