HTC willing to work patent deal with Apple Following a year-long debate, Apple recently gained the upper hand in its patent debate with HTC.
In an early decision, an ITC Judge ruled that HTC was violating two patents owned by Apple.

HTC, may have its own case, however, as S3 Graphics recently won its lawsuit against Apple, with the ITC ruling Apple violated two patents owned by S3. HTC just completed an acquisition of S3 for $300 million.

Today, HTC CFO Winston Yung says the company may be willing to put all this behind them and settle out of court with a licensing agreement.

A settlement will likely include a one-time royalty payment and then ongoing licensing fees.
