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.

$6 for non infringing devices

I cant help but notice how in that offer, apple also wants to get paid for devices that they admit are not thing like their devices - and they get a cross license of Samsungs patents in return.

In fact, only 20% of the proposed fee was for "proprietary" (by which I assume apple patented) features.
