Samsung seeks details of Apple’s HTC patent settlement.

So that they can stop Apple from imposing a sales ban on their products in the U. E., Samsung is seeking to have got Apple disclose the terms with their patent settlement with HTC. The lands for the court request are which the patents in question may be in connection with those that Apple had claimed were infringed upon by Samsung – especially, user experience patents which Apple company had previously refused to license to anyone. If they turned around and licensed these patents to be able to HTC, Apple will have difficulty convincing courts that the $1 billion in compensation isn't enough to maintain them happy.

Though a sales ban is seeming increasingly unlikely just for this particular case, Apple and Samsung will probably be duking it out in legal courts well into 2014, and the actual end result of this request could easily set the stage for patent disputes ahead.

It's great to see that will Apple may be put ready where they have to license their more ridiculous patents a lot more freely, but one still has to be able to wonder what made Apple alleviate up and accept a settlement with HTC to begin with. Any ideas? Maybe Tim Cook would like to relax Apple's image a little bit, or maybe just save about legal fees?
