Samsung accuses recent Apple products of infringing its patents

Sounds like a normal remote. Does Samsung own a patent to something every stereo vendor sells? This is such a generic feature, I would think Apple would be able to get it thrown out.

Still it is nice to see that Apple and HTC have at least settled, maybe the big boys can learn to play nice for 10 years as well.

On the other hand, HTC can't afford a $1 billion hit. They settled with Apple so the penalty would be spread out over a large number of phones instead of one lump sum. And as a result, Apple is HTC's best friend. Because if Apple keeps on smacking down Samsung in court and winning injunctions, HTC might have a chance to survive in the mobile space.
