Nokia and Samsung Extend Their Patent Deal


Samsung has extended a patent license agreement with Nokia and Samsung for five years.

The agreement between the two companies would have expired at the end of 2013.

According to the agreement, Samsung will pay additional compensation to Nokia for the period commencing from January 1, 2014 onwards, and the amount of such compensation shall be finally settled in a binding arbitration which is expected to be concluded during 2015.

"This extension and agreement to arbitrate represent a hallmark of constructive resolution of licensing disputes, and are expected to save significant transaction costs for both parties", said Paul Melin, Chief Intellectual Property Officer of Nokia.
