Apple to pay Creative $100 million to settle patent litigation

On August 23, 2006, Apple and Creative Technology have agreed to settle their legal dispute over music player patents with Apple paying Creative $100 million.

Apple got a licence to a Creative patent for the hierarchical user interface used in that company's Zen music players.

With the settlement, all legal disputes between the two companies related to the patent will disappear.
