 Samsung made this decision, but whatever the reason(s) may be, it's a good thing in my view. Samsung has already prevailed over Apple on SEPs in different jurisdictions (including at the ITC last year, though an import ban was ultimately vetoed). It makes sense for Samsung to focus on non-SEPs at the upcoming trial, and especially on its proven defensive strength

Further, in the EU, Samsung has only offered not to seek injunctive relief for 5 years and extend the negotiation period to 1 year.  This is far from abandoning SEP based legal strategy altogether. 

You last issue, this hasn't helped Samsung escape criticism yet.
