Samsung, Apple return to court for crucial hearing tomorrow

Legal representatives for Samsung Electronics Co Ltd registered a redacted copy of a 10-year patent licensing arrangement struck by Apple Inc with  HTC Corp in a U.S. court late on Wednesday after a judge’s order.

Samsung had earlier submitted a motion to compel Apple — with whom it is fighting a nasty legal battle over mobile patents across various places — to disclose details of an arrangement that was reached with HTC on Nov. 10 but which have been kept under wraps.

A legal court recently directed Apple to reveal to Samsung details of the legal agreement that  Apple reached with HTC, including terms of the 10-year patent licensing deal. In August, Apple won a $1.05 billion judgment against Samsung after a U.S. court learned that selected Samsung devices breached Apple’s application and design patents.
