Samsung revival hamstrung by 2014 Google deal – analyst

"A provision in Samsung's 2014 patent-sharing settlement with Google could hurt the South Korean electronics giant's efforts to rebound from the Note 7 recall."

Samsung have probably done very well out of the sharing of patents and that has allowed it to continue to dominate the market.

It just seems a little bit short sighted of them to have put themselves into a position where if things went wrong they would have a difficult recovery. Let's face it most companies will go through hard times.

Were Samsung just expecting to be able to dominate forever without evolving or expanding into new markets?
