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.

It's always fun to hear the fanboys' interpretation of Apple's desires/motives.


Apple's motives fro pursuing this action have always been absolutely clear. To stop Samsung from copying Apple designs

But the designs are not Apple's -- the designs did not originate at Apple.
