Dan Levin and Edwin Chan:
Apple Inc licensed its prized design patents to Microsoft Corp but with an “anti-cloning agreement” to prevent copying of its iPhone and iPad, an Apple executive said on Monday.
That executive was Apple’s director of patent licensing Boris Teksler who is testifying in the Apple/Samsung lawsuit. And he went on to note that “he could count on ‘on one hand’ the instances Apple has licensed those patents.”
Bet Samsung wishes it scored this deal right about now.
