Apple sanctions Samsung for sharing confidential data, then releases it anyway
Apple vs Samsung takes an unusual twist today with a report that Cupertino has actually shared some confidential information it accused Samsung of unlawfully sharing. It all centers around a confidential license agreement with Nokia, which a Samsung executive reportedly made known his knowledge of. But, according to FOSS Patents, Apple has outed the terms of the deal anyway:
So, Apple was required to share the terms with Samsung's lawyers, who then shared it unlawfully with Samsung executives, who then tried to use it to their own ends in the dispute. Apple files for sanctions, only it actually had the information publicly available all along. Or, something like that, anyway.
Honestly, if there was ever a face-palm worthy moment, that was probably it. Check out the full details at the source link below. Maybe one day all this endless back-and-forth can just go away?
