Samsung asks court for Apple-HTC Deal copy

In the ensuing legal battle over patent issues between Samsung and Apple, the recent deal between Apple-HTC seemingly is going to have a great impact, specially the big critical question: whether all of Apple's patents were covered by the deal.

Samsung Electronics Co, which could face such a sales ban following a crushing jury verdict against it in August, asked a United States (US) judge on Friday to force Apple to turn over a copy of the HTC agreement.
