Partner Peter Vogel Discusses Samsung Patent Dispute with E-Commerce Times

22 March 2016 News

E-Commerce Times spoke with Partner Peter S. Vogel, chair of the Firm's Internet, e-commerce and technology team, about the U.S. Supreme Court’s agreement to hear an appeal of Samsung’s patent dispute with Apple.

“Most complex technology disputes are confusing to the Supreme Court, and this will be no exception,” said Mr. Vogel. “The main reason is that justices on the Supreme Court are not trained in computer and patent technology, and freely admit they don't understanding texting and emails, so can one expect any more?”

In December, Samsung agreed to pay Apple $548 million in a patent settlement but stated in the filing that it reserved the right to reclaim or obtain a partial reimbursement.
