The Verge relays that Google has officially responded to last Friday’s ruling in the Apple/Samsung litigation. Google doesn’t take as strong a stance as Samsung and instead takes a more even keel perspective.
Google’s statement reads:
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.
Interestingly enough, some of the more damning evidence to emerge at trial were internal Samsung emails which revealed that Google itself was concerned over how similar Samsung’s products were starting to resemble Apple’s.
