Apple Attempting to Settle Patent Fights with Licensing Terms
Replying to: why? by netboy
Apple seemed happy to do that, but now everyone has started talking about FRAND in the EU, where it can be enforced quite strictly. I think there may be an end game where if FRAND enforcement falls apart altogether, (via new legal precedent, perhaps,) Apple could be shut out of the phone business altogether (at least in the EU.) Of course Apple doesn't want that, so they're now much more supportive of FRAND, which means they must be open to licensing more of their own patents.
I'm not a lawyer, though.
