Samsung essential patents: the group reaches an agreement with the European Union

Since 2011, the European Union accuses Samsung abuse of essential patents. After lengthy discussions, the European authority has accepted proposals from Samsung. It will offer better access to patent licenses, but the EU can intervene in negotiations with other companies and oversee disagreements.

The mobile manufacturer Samsung is often at the heart of proceedings related to patents used. If the group is currently before the California court because Apple complains stolen patents, Samsung is trying, too, to defend its patents. A little too much according to the European Union inquiry into the practices of Samsung since 2011. End of 2012, the European authority had concluded that Samsung was abusing its dominant position by preventing Apple using patents deemed essential for smartphones. According to the European Union, it is impeding competition, punishable by a fine of up to 10% of annual turnover.
To avoid lawsuits, Samsung has begun discussions to find concessions
