HTC and Apple

A few days back Samsung asked the courts for the terms of the settlement agreement between HTC and Apple, and this evening US Judge Paul S. Grewal granted the request. Samsung is curious because they believe that some of the licenses cover those special user experience patents that Apple is quick to claim are infringed. Samsung claims that their determination of whether or not those patents were licensed will help decide if they need to stop production of devices named in prior lawsuits.

Simply put, Samsung believes that if this agreement shows that Apple is fine with another company using these patents after a payment, then that billion dollar judgment awarded to Apple ought to cover it and no further proceedings are needed.

This one isn't going away any time soon, folks.
