HTC Offers an Olive Branch of Negotiation in Patent War with Apple

Posted Jul 26, 2011

A new light in the patent battle between HTC and Apple: HTC has announced that it is willing to negotiate with Apple. Each company has won a few ITC patent rulings, but Bloomberg reports that an end may be in sight as HTC’s CFO Winston Yung said the company is “open to having discussions” and “open to all sorts of solutions, as long as the solution and the terms are fair and reasonable.” His statement sounds like a fairly obvious offer, but the admission could lead to white flags from both sides.
