    amsung might be spending a lot of resources on getting its patents right, but apparently the scheme isn’t working as well as the company would be hoping for. Earlier today, Samsung was ordered to pay US$15.7 million to patent investment company Rembrandt Wireless Technologies LP for – no points for guessing – patent infringement. “24,000 companies believe Bluetooth technology should be shared for free. Obviously, Rembrandt is not a part of that, and they’re taking advantage of that,” said Attorney Jesse Jenner, co-counsel for Samsung for the case. The plaintiff, Rembrandt Wireless Technologies LP, maintained that by making, using, selling or offering for sale devices with the Bluetooth EDR (enhanced data rate), Samsung infringed the patent. Samsung, naturally, attempted to downplay the claim by calling it invalid, but the jury decided that Samsung didn’t have enough evidence to prove its claim.
