Apple, Samsung CEOs to Begin Patent Negotiations

Will the two companies find a way to settle their differences and end their global patent war?

Reuters: As ordered by a U.S. court, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Samsung CEO Choi Gee-sung will sit down with a mediator and attempt to resolve the issues which led to their patent disputes. The two companies have multiple lawsuits pending against each other in at least ten different countries. Apple alleges that Samsung's Galaxy products "slavishly" copy the design of the iPad and iPhone. Samsung  charges that Apple violates some its patents as well.

The negotiation session is scheduled to last two days.
