Last week, we reported that European Union formally launching an investigation that whether the South Korean Electronics giant is, Samsung breaching the antitrust rules in its legal battles against Apple – its rival.

Replying to a request for comment from Bloomberg, Samsung said that it believes the “enforcement of its 3G standard-essential patents is consistent with all applicable antitrust principles,” adding that it believes, “upon the scrutiny of the facts, the commission will conclude that Samsung Electronics has acted in compliance with EU competition rules.”

The EU executive said last week, “the (European) Commission will investigate, in particular, whether in doing so (seeking injunctions on patent infringements in 2011) Samsung has failed to honor its irrevocable commitment given in 1998 to the European Telecommunications Standards.”
