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.

Adurbe pondered...

Interesting how companies will avoid paying $30 dollars for a license yet will happily pay the millions in legal fees in avoiding them...

It probably not to late to retrain as a patent lawyer!!!!

Maybe you should just practice your math a bit first and see how many millions it comes out to when you factor in $30 dollars per phone and $40 per tablet? Then subtract the estimated numbers from people who would chose not to buy the devices at the newly inflated prices...

I imagine the numbers would be interesting.
