Apple demands that any potential patent litigation settlement with Samsung include an anti-cloning provision, according to a recent court filing. The smartphone giants are in settlement negotiations in an attempt to head off another round of patent litigation, which is scheduled to go to trial in March. Apple's "discussions with Samsung have consistently included limits to both the scope of any license and a prohibition against cloning Apple products," B.J.

Such a provision would prohibit future Samsung products from copying the design of Apple's handsets. less
