Samsung and LG both withdraw injunction requests, decide to talk
Perhaps it is because they both are based in South Korea. Or perhaps it is just that both Samsung and LG are like the rest of us and are sick and tired of hearing about legal issues in the industry. But the news is that both Samsung and LG have dropped requests with the Seoul Central District Court of Korea for preliminary injunctions. The issue revolves around a claim made by Samsung that LG stole some of its technology related to the production of OLED screens. Samsung filed for a preliminary injunction as did LG. The latter sought a sales ban on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

But Samsung decided to withdraw its filing as did LG as both firms decided to try to reach an amicable resolution. If only other companies would follow this lead, perhaps the world would be a nicer place to live in. Right, Apple?

if in same country, sometimes (or manytimes) political clout also works. This looks to be the case here.

This is how adults handle things; talking, not fighting. The issue gets resolved faster and technology advancements can resume, otherwise resources and time are being wasted on pointless fighting that only makes the consumer end up the loser.
