HTC and Apple settle patent disputes, sign 10-year licensing agreement

12 Nov

It seems lawsuits over patents and other technologies have been filed between just about everyone in the mobile industry and it seemed to hurt more than help as tempers flared on both sides.

Two major players in the ongoing patent litigation battle are settling their scores and making up.

Apple and HTC reached a settlement agreement that dismisses all lawsuits and sets up a 10-year licensing agreement.

“HTC is pleased to have resolved its dispute with Apple, so HTC can focus on innovation instead of litigation,” said HTC chief executive Peter Chou.

“We are glad to have reached a settlement with HTC,” said Tim Cook, CEO of Apple.  “We will continue to stay laser focused on product innovation.”

The license agreement extends to current and future patents held by both parties. The terms of the settlement are confidential so we won’t find out all the details just yet.

I know that other mobile players have licensing agreements and hope that others can work together as well. Maybe the U.S. government should look to these two companies example and now try to work together too?

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
