Apple boss, Tim Cook prefers to settle patent lawsuits on the condition that “everybody invents their own stuff.”

Cook was speaking at the company’s quarterly conference call, and expressed his desire to end patent litigation among tech companies.

“I would highly prefer to settle than to battle, but it’s important that Apple not become the developer for the world. We need people to invent their own stuff,” he said.

Cook will have the opportunity to settle disputes with electronics giant, Samsung, whose high-level executives will meet up with Cook to discuss potential settlements at the suggestion of a U.S. district court judge.

Around the same time as Cook’s address, Apple was dealt a blow when the ITC ruled that their popular iPhone and iPad devices currently infringe on a Motorola Mobility-owned software patent.
