‘No relation with Android’: Google on Apple-Samsung verdict


It’s been three days since Samsung lost in court on Friday and was ordered to pay $1.049 billion to Apple, both companies released their own press statements however the big search giant was quiet during this time.

The silence was broken when Google finally issued a vague statement claiming that stock Android doesn’t infringe on any Apple patents, in fact Google is trying to reassure its OEMs however it did admit that all mobile industry players “are building upon ideas that have been around for decades.”

This doesn’t come as much as a surprise since they’ve already warned Samsung about their designs which were seemingly too similar to Apple’s.

The Verge managed to reproduce Google’s statement,

The court of appeals will review both infringement and the validity of the patent claims. Most of these don’t relate to the core Android operating system, and several are being re-examined by the US Patent Office. The mobile industry is moving fast and all players — including newcomers — are building upon ideas that have been around for decades. We work with our partners to give consumers innovative and affordable products, and we don’t want anything to limit that.
