Judge Orders Apple And HTC To Show Their Settlement To Samsung

After Apple and HTC have signed a ten-year licensing agreement we have recently found out that Samsung wanted to know all the details of the settlement. The South Korean company wants to see whether Apple is fine with licensing its user experience patents and in case it was, a Samsung ban wouldn’t be justified.

Apple and HTC both agreed to show a version of the document with financials redacted but Judge Paul S. Grewal, despite being “more than a little skeptical” about Samsung’s argument, has granted the request. Apple and HTC are now being forced to show the unredacted version, however, subject to an “Attorneys-Eyes-Only” designation which will guarantee that the details will not be seen by anyone but Samsung’s legal team.
