Legal "[...] tonight Apple entered into evidence in its trial with Samsung a document showing that it offered the South Korean company a licensing deal on some of its key technologies. Specifically, Apple offered to license the portfolio of patents if Samsung would pay $30 per smartphone and $40 per tablet." $30-40 per device is a lot of money for some trivial features (rounded corners, slide-to-unlock etc). No wonder Samsung declined.

Perhaps they didn't really want them to accept it. Instead of making an offer the couldn't refuse, they did the opposite. .. .. or they were just being greedy.

Probably being greedy.

This is not about greed - greed with Apple comes from exploiting its customers. This is about using the legal system to prevent Samsung from competing. Apple know with competition they wouldn't be able to keep screwing their customers.
