The European Commission (EC) is taking a stand and will begin “stating objections” against Samsung for breaking competition rules in filing a patent lawsuit against Apple. Samsung will be able to write a reply to request a hearing among regulators, with ample time to read through the EC’s complaints, but will not pursue injunctions against Apple products. More companies in Europe are turning to the EC to help quickly settle disputes, who are currently investigating both Microsoft and Google.  [Source: Yahoo]
