Tim Cook to meet Samsung CEO over patent claims

|By:, SA News Editor

Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook and his Samsung (SSNLF, SSNGY) counterpart Oh-Hyun Kwon have agreed to attend a mediation session to see if they can't sort out their global patent spat peacefully.

The meeting is due to take place on February 19 ahead of another prospective court clash in San Jose in March. This one is over Apple's claims of IP violations by Samsung.

The companies have tried similar high-level mediation before in 2011 and 2012, but to no avail.
