Apple directed to provide Samsung details of its legal settlement with HTC
TT Correspondent |  |  22 Nov 2012

Apple has been directed by a U.S. judge to provide details of its legal settlement with Taiwan's HTC Corp to South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics. The detail also includes terms of a 10-year patents licensing agreement.

Samsung had approached the court requesting it to ask Apple to provide a copy of its patent license agreement with HTC that took place last week.

HTC and Apple had reached a global settlement that includes the dismissal of all current lawsuits and a ten-year license agreement. The license extends to current and future patents held by both parties. The terms of the settlement are confidential.

Samsung in the filing said that it is almost certain that Apple’s settlement with HTC covers some of the patents at issue in its dispute with Samsung,

It said that the agreement may undermine Apple’s claim that Samsung’s patent infringement can’t be resolved with license payments, according to the filing.

“Apple’s apparent willingness to license these patents supports Samsung’s argument that

Apple cannot show irreparable harm because monetary damages are adequate,” Samsung said in the filing.

Apple won a $1.05 billion patent-infringement verdict in August in a jury trial against against Samsung in San Jose. U.S. District.
