Samsung has filed a redacted version of the Apple-HTC settlement into the public record, revealing that each company will get nonexclusive rights to a number of the other’s patents, although Apple’s design patents seem to be expressly excluded. Apple has agreed not to sue HTC over certain products, the names of which were redacted. HTC will remain liable for any products that “clone” an Apple product — whether or not a product is “cloned” will be determined by an arbitration process. A ruling earlier this week determined that the list of patents in the settlement can’t be sealed. [via AllThingsD]
