EU set to charge Samsung in Apple antitrust case
The legal battle between Apple and Samsung may be winding down, but the Korean electronics maker's courtroom troubles are far from over. As Reuters reports, Joaquin Almunia, the European Commission's Vice President of Competition Policy, has revealed that the organization will soon charge Samsung for the company's use of injunctions against Apple in the region. The commission's stance is that the injunctions may have run afoul of antitrust guidelines.
Once Samsung has some time to review the specific charges it will be facing, the company will have a chance to plead its case in writing and request a hearing be held. Depending on the outcome, Samsung could be fined as much as 10 percent of the company's total annual revenue.
