It looks like the festive spirit is making its way around the world today, with US Judge Paul S. Grewal granting Samsung's request to look at the HTC and Apple settlement agreement. Samsung wants to know if anything weird is going on, and they'll soon find out.
Samsung has claimed that their determination of whether or not the patents were licensed, will help decide if they need to stop production of devices named in prior lawsuits. If Samsung were to find that Apple were happy with another company using the patents they supposedly infringed upon, then the $1 billion judgment to Apple would be enough, and no further proceedings need to happen.
I'm feeling as though Samsung are going to find some dirt in the settlement agreement, and Apple will hopefully, back down. Realizing that it is hurting them in the long run with customers jumping the iShip - as well as investors. Let's just hope so, eh?
