Apple to pay $100mill to Creative

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Apple Computer Inc.'s agreement to pay $100 million to rival Creative Technology Ltd. settled five patent lawsuits over iPod technology that had threatened to block imports of the popular digital music player, which are manufactured abroad.
The articles pretty long with some fairly interesting info.

I never realised apple would result to corporate bullying. After the years of abuse from Microsoft. It goes to show how dumb it is to believe a corporation has other interests besides making money.

I'm surprised Apple even aggress to do a "licenses" agreement. They should use their Front Row Interface on their iPods. Not pay their competition.
