Samsung Sniffing Through HTC-Apple Settlement to Find Cracks

Samsung may force Apple to turn over a copy of the recent patent-licensing deal it struck with HTC, reports Reuters. The move could undermine Apple's legal battle with Samsung depending on how the settlement with HTC is worded. Specifically, Samsung wants to know if the settlement covers all of Apple's patents, or if it excludes Apple's "user experience" patents. Apple has previously said it would not license patents that pertain to its user experience. At the same time, Apple wants Samsung's phones banned in the U.S. for copying its designs and user experiences. If the settlement between HTC and Apple does in fact cover the user experience patents, Samsung would have a better chance of preventing a ban of its products. The judge overseeing the $1.05 billion verdict against Samsung is hearing arguments in the case with respect to potential damages on December 6.

What's next?

Apple sues Vatican because apple is in the Bible?

No they will sue fisherman for using the same style nets as them....
I imagine that the "user experience" is also the same. You bite into an iPhone, you think you found Jesus, and then you get screwed in the rear.

Love the article names today!

SNIFFING through their settlement? To find.."Crack(s)" ?
Nice. However, I think that both companies may have been sniffing a little bit, based on their recent behaviour, that is.
Now that you mention it, I took another look and some of these recent headlines do sound a little frisky...
