The European Commission Is Investigating The Patent War between Apple and Samsung

The European Commission is mosqueada with the war of patents for Apple and Samsung, mainly driven by software patents associated with Android. Joaquín Almunia, as European Commissioner for competition, has required both companies information about cross demands that remain in Europe, so that the Commission can study them:

We need to study it because of intellectual property rights can be used to distort competition.

I.e. that the Commission suspected that all of us: that demands continuous crossings are more to harm sales of the opponent that the mere defense of intellectual property, which would be contrary to legislation on free competition in Europe.

If the European Union determines that there are irregularities in the demands of Apple and Samsung, it could impose fines of up to ten per cent of the annual benefits both companies, so you throw counts and you will see that it can serve to fill a few holes.

Almunia said that although East is not the only case in which intellectual property is an excuse for restricting competition, it is the most significant. For the moment, neither Samsung nor Apple have responded yet to the requirements of the Commission. It is usual to deliver it at the last moment in order not to give clues to the other party.
