Samsung certainly doesn’t lack for courtroom enemies. As its patent war with Apple escalates, it now finds itself facing off with mobile infrastructure titan Ericsson, which is suing Samsung for allegedly infringing on its vast networking patent portfolio. According to Ericsson, Samsung entered into a licensing agreement with Ericsson in 2001 for the latter’s 30,000 patents relating to technologies ranging from Wi-Fi to GSM and LTE. They renewed the agreement in 2007, but after failing to reach a third renewal agreement following two years of negotiations, Samsung let the deal expire, Ericsson chief intellectual property officer Kasim Alfalahi said in a phone interview.
Earlier this month Samsung requested the court to force Apple to turn over their settlement agreement with HTC. Samsung believes that the agreement will allow them a vital insight into Apple’s strategy on licensing/patents and use it to their advantage in their disputes.
The Samsung Galaxy S III was the best-selling smartphone of the third quarter, said Strategy Analytics. Its data shows Samsung sold 18 million of them during the July – September period.
