Settlement talks? What’s there to settle…in the previous statement by HTC they said they are confident that they are in compliance with the ITC ruling. Seems to me that if there are to be settlements something went tragically wrong. Are they not in compliance or was there a different patent that they are infringing on? The fact remains that Apple won’t be happy till they are the only smartphone left on earth…. inquisitive minds want to know what’s up. Earlier we tried to get in contact with HTC for a statement, so far we have not heard back.
Hit the break for more information……
FOSS Patents reports
Today the United States District for the District of Delaware ordered the lawyers as well unspecified decision makers of Apple and HTC to meet in Delaware on August 28, 2012, to discuss a possible settlement. The talks will be moderated by Magistrate Judge Sherry R. Fallon.
This orders comes a day after two HTC product launch dates had to be postponed because of issues resulting from an ITC import ban Apple won last year over a “data tapping” patent, and a few days before the CEOs of Apple and Samsung will meet for the same kind of purpose in San Francisco (on Monday and Tuesday).
If we hear anything new we will update as we go.
