Microsoft announces plans to sue Samsung for lack of payment

Legal trouble is brewing between two tech giants in a battle over Android patent fees

Legal trouble is brewing between two tech giants. Microsoft is suing Samsung in a battle over Android patent fees. Microsoft says the South Korean firm has failed to pay it on schedule for the use of its inventions, and it has started legal proceedings in New York, according to the BBC.

According to TechCrunch’s Alex Wilhelm, Samsung, like other Android manufacturers, shells out money to Microsoft for what the software company views as “stepping on its intellectual properties’ toes.” The case marks the first time that Microsoft has engaged in legal action against Samsung.
