Apple Offered Patent Cross-License to Samsung
Category: Tablets, Smartphones
As reported in the AllThingsD blog, it came out in the Apple-Samsung patent trial Friday that Apple had offered a patent license to Samsung when it first decided that Samsung's phones infringed its patents.
The offer was $30 per smartphone and $40 per tablet, with a 20% discount if Samsung cross-licensed its patents. Although Apple's complaints had to do with Android phones, its offer required royalties on Samsung's non-Android phones, including those running Symbian and Bada.
Apple's offer to Samsung, included below, was referenced by Apple patent licensing director Boris Teksler during his testimony at the trial Friday.
