Legal Interesting news in the middle of the night: Apple and HTC have announced they've settled all their patent disputes, bringing an end to all running lawsuits between the two companies. The companies signed a ten-year cross-licensing deal. Considering Apple's legal assault on Android hasn't been going particularly well, this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

Examples? Most of those have been thrown out, or were easily circumvented by Samsung. Apple has won nothing so far.


None needed. You state "most", which implies that some do exist. Also, I'll note that you purposely limit your statement to "easily circumvented".

That is highly irrelevant. The point of the legal action is to create a cloud of uncertainty and make it financially unattractive to use Android.


...which is currently under investigation.


Being under appellate review in and of itself is NOT a negative for Apple. ANY outcome of this trial was going to go to an appeals court.

Saying that JUST because it is in appeals it is inherently doomed is misguided.

Let's say Apple lost to Samsung for a second. Would you say that Samsung's win was legitimate because Apple is appealing the decision? No. I suspect you'd have 12 articles a day about how Apple got rebuked by the courts.

Except they didn't because you, the commenters on this site, and Groklaw were DEAD WRONG about how the trial would come out. You all were about as fanatical as Republicans on election day expecting Mitt Romney to win. Every poll was "biased" and the media was "lying". Just like every juror was corrupt, the foreman was unethical, and the Judge was in the tank for Apple. Riiight.


Nothing bizarre about this - just plain common sense. Your irrational hate is clouding your judgement.


MY irrational hate? Have you SEEN your articles lately? They're so blatantly anti-Apple and anti-Microsoft that I doubt you're even trying to remain objective anymore.

Just look at your other article "Goes to show who Microsoft cares about: Hint: it ain't you."

You've deteriorated into sensationalism, and the only one yet to see it is you.
