A first look at the HTC Apple license agreement

Even though it’s heavily redacted, there’s still lots to be learned from it.

Mainly:

– Apple isn’t paying HTC anything. HTC is doing all the paying, which is probably going to hurt the feelings of many on the internet who claimed otherwise.

– None of Apple’s design patents are included in the settlement, which is really bad news for Samsung who wanted to see the license in the first place to show that those patents were covered by the deal too.
