HTC settles global patent battle with Apple

HTC Corp has announced it has reached a global patent settlement and 10-year licensing agreement with Apple Inc. that ends one of the first major conflagrations of the smartphone patent wars, Reuters has reported. Apple sued HTC in 2010, accusing the Taiwanese handset company of infringing on the iPhone maker's patented technology. Late last year, the US International Trade Commission ruled that HTC had infringed upon one of four patents Apple had disputed and imposed a sales ban on some of the Taiwanese maker's phones. Apple and HTC did not disclose specific terms of the deal.
