Google is helping Samsung win its case against Apple

In the seemingly endless dispute between Apple and Samsung, one would ask where is Google? After all, Google's Android operating system and its proprietary apps are deeply integrated into many of Samsung's phones.

Apple accused the South Korean smartphone manufacturer of infringing five of its patents, and it wants the company to pay no less than $2 billion. Samsung, who lost to Apple a couple of years ago, maintained its innocence, adding that if it is found to be guilty, the damages should be less than $2 billion.

So far, Samsung has managed to feign three patent claims. Two patents remain - the patent for cover background synchronization and universal search.

According to Re/code, Google has offered to help Samsung in the case.

Google lawyer James Maccoun testified on Tuesday that Google agreed to "take over defense of some of the claims in Apple’s current patent lawsuit as well as to indemnify Samsung should it lose on those claims," writes Ina Fried .

Apparently, Google and Samsung signed a “Mobile Application Distribution Agreement.” Under the terms of the agreement, Samsung will agree to distribute Google's proprietary apps, e.g. Gmail, Google Search, Google+.

Both companies declined to comment on the report.
