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.

NEGATIVE.

Now one side will PAY the other (deal with 0 as balance is unlikely).

So THIS side will rise their smartphone priceses.

CONSUMER LOOSE.

And put "copying" in to the bin. IF HTC release any product, its because they have paid WHOLE bill for R&D.

So they pay EXTRA.

Consumer would get EXACTLY SAME device without that deal.

So CONSUMER LOOSE.

So there is no need for CONSUMERT TO APPLAUSE THAT DEAL.
