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.

Then there's the other parts of TechGeek's post you didn't comment on - basically, Apple's only significant "victory" is a jury trial where there were several of problems with said jury. Everything else, all the injunctions that haven't been overturned yet, they have done nothing to help Apple in terms of market share.


I'd gladly respond to this, but TechGeek sent up the warning flag that he (or at least his argument) is irrational. If HTC is "beating" Apple, despite paying Apple for patent cross-licensing and being cut in half during the same time frame that Apple doubled because Apple has failed to completely halt the growth of all Android manufacturers, there is clearly little chance that a rational argument would also convince him that Apple is also beating Motorola and Samsung in the courtroom.
