Google, which is behind the Android operating system found on Samsung devices, issued a statement that intends to distance itself from the case, stating that most of the patents in question “don’t relate to the core Android operating system“.
The statement was provided to The Verge, and also points out there is going to be an appeal soon, that will review the verdict on several patents, mainly because “all players — including newcomers — are building upon ideas that have been around for decades”
“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.”
