Ina Fried at AllThingsD:

According to the document, both sides are getting a nonexclusive, nontransferrable and non-sublicensable license to certain of the other’s patents. Apple also agrees not to sue HTC over certain covered products, though the specific products are redacted.

The agreement also appears to exclude any of Apple’s design patents as well as coverage on any products that are defined as cloning an Apple product.

Samsung put the document into public view with most areas blocked out. Maybe Samsung released it to show its products shouldn’t receive an injunction at the hands of Apple. Check it out below:
