If they did, that would have been fair enough. Some days you get the bear, some days the bear gets you.
Apple refused licensing offers before this.
I pay a part of my phone purchases to Microsoft for their licensing deal. That's the way it goes.
But until now, Apple fans have gone viral over what HTC stole, regardless of the facts, and it's hurt HTC's reputation.
I really hope that Apple's willingness to bargain marks the end of this nonsense in court.
