Apple Attempting to Settle Patent Fights with Licensing Terms
Apple is not settling...
This offer can only be considered an admission of defeat by Apple.
where are you apple in germany?
trying to ban samsung products instead of settle it!
Legal threats. See, apple is not only taking the big guys (Samsung, HTC, Motorola), but also the little guys to court. Little guys cannot afford all the legal tie up and will settle. This gets Apple money.
And, it was Apple's plan...
It's a start
I don't want to comment on which ones should/shouldn't be legal, but I just want this patent war to end so that we can start focusing on what matters which is getting the best product out to the customers.
