Reports: Samsung, Apple execs unable to reach settlement, will continue legal battle in March

According to a number of reports, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) CEO Tim Cook and Samsung co-CEO J.K. Shin held a meeting last week in an attempt to iron out the companies' ongoing legal battle over patent infringement. However, according to those reports, Cook and Shin were unable to reach an agreement on the issue and appear set to return to the courtroom in March to continue their dispute. The issue stretches back to the creation of Google's Android, which Apple executives including the late Steve Jobs believe infringes on Apple's iPhone designs. Apple won a legal victory in the U.S. against Samsung in 2012 but Samsung has worked for appeals. Article

Further, Samsung plans to call Apple's marketing chief Phil Schiller to the courtroom stand when the two companies again face off in in a California courtroom. Schiller was among those who testified during the companies' initial case. Article
