War between Apple and Samsung don’t finish, and looks as a war with no winner or no loser. According to bloomberg Steve Jobs, founder of Apple Inc. (AAPL), initiated contact with rival Samsung Electronics Co. in July 2010 to try to resolve a patent dispute that has since become a legal battle on four continents, an Australian court was told. 

Jobs wasn’t involved once the ultimately unsuccessful talks over the Galaxy smartphone began, Richard Lutton, a senior director at Apple and the company’s patent attorney, told Federal Court in Sydney today.

“Samsung is an important supplier with whom we have a deep relationship,” Lutton testified in response to questioning by Samsung lawyer David Catterns. “We wanted to give them a chance to do the right thing.”

Apple claims that Samsung used its patents to copy the iPhone and the iPads. Samsung has also sued with claims in South Korea, Japan, Germany, the Netherlands and Australia that Apple violated its own patents.

T-Mobile USA has issued a statement in support of Samsung in the phone maker’s ongoing legal battles with Apple. T-Mobile said any court actions taken against Samsung preventing the South Korea-based company from selling its devices in the United States would “unnecessarily harm” the carrier.
