As Apple has filed a lawsuit against Samsung for infringing its patent rights, Samsung is now considering the option to back down and make adjustments in its software that is under strict criticism. The Galaxy Nexus Android smartphone’s software will be modified to address the complaints by Apple Inc. This smartphone was brought to market by Samsung and Google, but its sales have been halted as a result of the patent rights issues.
Apple has also complained about some other phones by Samsung to be infringing their patent rights and demanded justice. The Galaxy Nexus is among the list of products that have been questioned.
Samsung has apparently realized that their reputation and long-term profitability is at stake and these legal battles are going to hurt them a lot. The company hopes to get back on track in the sale of smartphones after announcing the modification of software and satisfying Apple regarding the patent rights. The court is supporting Apple and therefore Samsung has to seriously consider for the solution of the problem. The court will not accept the request for resuming the sale of the above-mentioned smartphone unless necessary adjustments are made.
The products by both Apple and Samsung are very popular in the consumer market. Their smartphones are in tough competition with each other and thought to be good substitutes for each other. So it is very important for Apple to maintain a differentiation in its products and keep a check on the competitors for infringement of the patent rights. For this reason, Apple has started the legal battle and demanded the security of its designs and ideas.
