Samsung to Stop Injunction Requests Seeking to Block Apple Sales in Europe

Bloomberg:

“Samsung has decided to withdraw our injunction requests against Apple on the basis of our standard essential patents pending in European courts, in the interest of protecting consumer choice,” the Suwon, South Korea-based company said in an e-mailed statement today. The decision on European lawsuits comes hours after a U.S. court ruled it wouldn’t ban sales of 26 Samsung products in a patent lawsuit.

Translation: We had no chance in hell of winning using “Standard Essential Patents”, so we dropped it before getting our asses handed to us.
