Samsung Seeks Information On Apple-HTC Deal

Samsung is moving legally in order gain access to the documents related to the recent Apple-HTC licensing deal, hoping that the HTC deal covers some of the patents involved in its own litigation with Apple.

Last week Apple and HTC ended their worldwide legal battles with a 10-year patent licensing agreement.

According to Reuters, Samsung asked a U.S. judge on Friday to force Apple to turn over a copy of the HTC agreement. Samsung argued that the HTC deal covers some of the patents involved in its own litigation with Apple, including those related to the so-called "user-experience" like touchscreen functionality and design. The agreement may undermine Apple?s claim that Samsung?s patent infringement can?t be resolved with license payments, according to the filing.

Apple has previosuly said that the company is not willing to license such patents, although it did to Microsoft, Nokia and IBM. Apple argues that its Nokia, IBM and Microsoft deals shouldn't stand in the way of an injunction.
