EU to end anti-trust action

Samsung Electronics has offered to stop taking rivals such as Apple to court in Europe over patent disputes in order to end an antitrust investigation.

European Union regulators said the move will defuse a long-running patent war between the world's biggest mobile operators. The European Commission said that Samsung's patent lawsuits broke European Union antitrust rules. It may also help Samsung avert a possible fine that could reach $18.3 billion.

Samsung has offered to abstain from seeking injunctions for mobile SEPs (standard essential patents) for a period of five years against any company that agrees to a particular licensing framework," the Commission said in a statement. The Commission, said the Samsung case would bring clarity to the mobile telephony industry.
