Apple chose legal action 'very reluctantly' and only after repeatedly asking Samsung to stop 'copying its work'

SAN FRANCISCO (REUTERS) - Apple Inc decided to take its patent infringement battle to the courts only after"repeatedly" asking close component partner and arch-rival Samsung Electronics to stop mimicking the company's designs, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tim Cook told employees. "We chose legal action very reluctantly and only after repeatedly asking Samsung to stop copying our work," Mr Cook said in an internal memo. Mr Cook's message sent to Apple employees late on Friday followed a decisive win handed to the company by a California federal court in its patent infringement battle against Samsung. A nine-member jury in the United States found that Samsung had copied key features of the hugely popular iPhone and iPad, and awarded Apple US$1.05 billion (S$1.31 billion) in damages.
