Apple: Samsung did not live up to its standards-essential patent obligations

“Lawyers for Apple tackled the last major part of their case on Friday, arguing that Samsung didn’t live up to its obligations with regard to its standards-related patents,” Ina Fried reports for AllThingsD.

“Samsung is alleging that Apple infringed on two kinds of patents, some feature related and others related to wireless standards,” Fried reports. “On those patents, Apple is alleging both that the company had a duty to disclose the technology rights before the 3GPP standard was adopted and that Samsung had a commitment to license any such intellectual property on a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory basis.”

Fried reports, “Testimony in the case should end later on Friday. The jury is likely to get Monday off while the lawyers and Koh haggle over the final legal instructions that will be read to the jury. On Tuesday, the jury will hear closing arguments — two hours per side — as well as the final jury instructions before beginning their deliberations.”
