Re: I would... Supplier agreements, at least every one I've ever seen absolve the buyer against any patent claim stemming from the use of the purchased product (meaning the supplier guarantees that what you are describing can't happen). So if Sammy does this, those suppliers like Broadcom are up S-creek, stuck between giants Samsung and Apple. Apple would then hit Broadcom for violation of the supplier agreement. Broadcom would have to compensate Apple for any losses.
