Tim Cook Trying to Negotiate Legal Settlement with Samsung CEO
Talk about an interesting time to be a fly on the wall.
Like two heads of state meeting to negotiate peace talks and end a bloody war, Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook is planning a tech summit of sorts with Samsung CEO Gee-Sung Choi. According to published reports Tuesday, the two titans of technology will sit down together in San Francisco to participate in "moderated settlement talks."
Interestingly enough, however, the meeting is generally scheduled to take place sometime within the next three months. "Within 90 days," reveals Foss Patents, "they will make another effort to settle their dispute. They will meet in a San Francisco courthouse for settlement talks that will be overseen by U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero."
If it strikes you as positive news that both sides want to meet and amicably resolve the dispute, think again. This settlement effort, we're told, is only "semi-voluntary." Judge Lucy Koh ordered the parties to "comment on their availability for an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) effort."
In this situation, they both had to be cooperative: if only one of them had made the CEO available, the other one would have appeared to be less than constructive.

Why CEO? Why not representative or head of Samsung USA?
If 1 CEO do not show up that company will be seen as uncooperative which means Judge would lean toward the one with CEO showing up, conisider Apple is not far from San Francisco and Samsung CEO is in Korea...

Samsung is an emulator, never was an innovator. Name one Samsung original product.
