<p>SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) - Microsoft Corp. has filed a suit against Samsung accusing the electronics manufacturer of breaching a patent licensing agreement, the software giant said Friday. The two companies had signed a cross-licensing agreement in 2011 covering Samsung's use of Google Inc.'s Android operating system, which Microsoft says uses some of its technology. However, Microsoft Deputy General Counsel David Howard said in a blog post that, "After becoming the leading player in the worldwide smartphone market, Samsung decided late last year to stop complying with its agreement with Microsoft." He also argued that Samsung used Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia as "an excuse to breach its contract." The Microsoft suit was filed before a federal court in New York.

<p>WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - President Barack Obama on Friday said he was mystified by House Republican opposition to the Export-Import Bank. "We will lose business and we will lose jobs" if Congress does not reauthorize the federal agency, Obama said at his afternoon press conference. The Ex-Im bank charter expires at the end of the fiscal year on September 30. He noted that Republicans had historically backed the Ex-Im Bank. The institution allows major U.S. companies like Boeing Co. and General Electric to compete with foreign rivals for overseas sales, he said. "When did that become something that Republicans opposed?" Obama asked.

<p>LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. on Friday called Allergan Inc.'s filing of a federal lawsuit "frivolous" and said it was an effort to interfere with the calling of a special shareholder vote on Valeant's $53 billion for Allergan. The company was responding to Allergan's allegations earlier in the day that Valeant and activist investor William Ackman engaged in insider trading prior to Valeant's April 22 offer.
