HTC open to negotiations with Apple

HTC has said it’s willing to negotiate a settlement with Apple after both parties received favorable judgements from the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) in their various ongoing patent disputes, Bloomberg reports. “We have to sit down and figure it out,” said HTC CFO Winston Yung. “We’re open to having discussions.” HTC recently purchased S3 Graphics less than a week after the ITC ruled that Apple was in violation of two of its patents; the ITC later ruled that HTC was in violation of two Apple patents related to data detection and transmission technologies. “We are open to all sorts of solutions, as long as the solution and the terms are fair and reasonable,” Yung said. “On and off we’ve had discussions with Apple, even before the initial determination came out,” he added, noting that he was unaware of any talks between the two companies since the two rulings were announced.
