Apple begins playing nice with other kids on the playground – settles with clockmaker and HTC

// November 11th, 2012 // Mobile


Reports are out that Apple has paid $21 million for rights to the Swiss Federal Railway clock it used in iOS 6 without their permission. In addition, Apple and HTC announced this past weekend that they have ended all their patent disputes.  The financial terms of their agreement remains confidential but since HTC has been on the losing end thus far, it is safe to assume they paid a hefty sum to stop the litigation.  In addition, the companies announced a 10-year license to current and future patents held by both companies.

Apple has now reached agreements with HTC and Nokia and has fully litigated a case against Samsung.  The only major Apple lawsuit that remains open is against Motorola which is now owned by Google.
