A U.S. judge has granted Samsung's request to see the recently signed patent settlement and licensing agreement struck between Apple and HTC. The settlement, announced earlier this month, ended all the patent litigation between the two companies worldwide. Samsung believes the settlement may offer it a chance to better argue its case against Apple in the U.S. At issue is whether or not the Apple-HTC settlement covers just Apple's engineering patents, or if it also covers Apple's design and/or trade-dress patents. The judge ordered Apple and HTC to turn over the settlement "without delay." Additionally, Samsung has added more Apple products to its patent complaint against Apple, including the the iPod Touch 5, the iPad 4, and the iPad Mini. The two companies have been waging a worldwide patent war since April 2010.
