Court orders Apple to disclose details of HTC settlement

Written by Rob Squires

To Samsung

A California based U.S. Federal Judge has ordered Apple to unveil details of its patent agreement with HTC to its competitor, Samsung. 

This happened after Samsung successfully argued that the information was relevant in their dispute with Apple. Samsung requested that the court compel Apple to produce a copy of the settlement and patent cross-licensing agreement it had entered into with HTC. Samsung believed that it covered at least some of the patents in Samsung’s dispute.

Details of the patent sharing agreement however, will only be made available for viewing by the attorneys in the patent lawsuit. Earlier this month, Apple and HTC settled their patent disputes with a 10-year agreement to cross license current and future patents from their portfolios. The exact terms of the settlement between the two companies was kept confidential.
