Apple-Nokia deal lasts until December 2016?
When Samsung filed its response to Apple's request for a permanent injunction against several Samsung devices, it wanted to make a point. Apple had claimed that its deal with Nokia was not relevant to the current proceedings with Samsung because it was a "provisional license for a limited standstill period." Samsung countered by stating that the Apple-Nokia deal covered the future and was not simply a license covering past damages. And within that statement, Samsung revealed that the Apple-Nokia patent agreement runs from June 12th, 2011 to December 31st, 2016.
Apple and Samsung are said to be currently engaged in settlement talks, even at the highest level. Both meet up in the courtroom again on January 30th under the glaring eyes of Judge Lucy Koh. Apple has sought sanctions against Samsung's chief licensing executive Dr. Seungho Ahn for two years, along with others who got a glimpse of the confidential documents. Nokia, on the other hand, seeks sanctions against Samsung's legal team from Quinn Emanuel. Let's see if Judge Koh has anything to say about this during that hearing.

Obviously, they like to keep things simple for their lawyers. Still, even though Samsung did break the rules by using their ill-begotten knowledge to their advantage. But that is what will happen when Apple expects you to pay $20-40 per device for using their innovation in rectangles with screens or bouncing list.
