Nokia and HTC will also work on projects together in regards to HTC's LTE patents

Nokia and HTC have decided to play nice and settle all ongoing patent disputes between the two. 

According to Nokia, HTC will pay the Finnish company a fee for access to its technology, but the fee amount is being kept quiet. 

In addition, Nokia and HTC will work on projects together in regards to HTC's LTE patents, and will even pair up for other future technology projects. 

"We are very pleased to have reached a settlement and collaboration agreement with HTC, which is a long standing licensee for Nokia's standards essential patents," said Paul Melin, chief intellectual property officer at Nokia. "This agreement validates Nokia's implementation patents and enables us to focus on further licensing opportunities." 

Nokia and HTC are just one recent example of tech companies working together rather than arguing. For instance, Samsung settled with Google, Ericsson and Cisco separately in recent weeks to end litigation related to patents. 

However, one notable patent rivalry still remains, and that's between Samsung and Apple. The two have been duking it out since April 2011 when Apple accused Samsung of being an iPhone and iPad copycat. 

But there's hope for an end to the bloody battle (at least in the U.S.), as both Apple and Samsung agreed to mediation over U.S. patents last month. Samsung CEO Oh-Hyun Kwon and Apple CEO Tim Cook agreed to meet regarding settlement opportunities on or before February 19.
