Legal "Samsung's move to drop all requests for injunctions against Apple in Europe may not be enough to escape sanctions from the European Commission over the alleged abuse of its standards essential patents. EC Vice President Joaquin Almunia said during a press conference on Thursday in Brussels that his office will continue with its investigation against Samsung and will release a 'statement of objections' within the coming weeks."

Well, Apple's dubious law suits doesn't make Samsung's dubious move to countersue using FRAND patents legitimate. I mean there are patents protecting genuine inventions (not something like Amazon's one-click), and if Samsung's tactics are allowed, other companies holding FRAND patents on essential standards could have leveraged their patents to get those intellectual properties without any compensations to the inventors
