I don't think it'll ever get that far...if judges worldwide agree with Samsung I can see a deal being made as Apple needs the wireless patents more than Samsung needs whatever the hell Apple is suing them for in whatever country.
I don't really know much about the Samsung case but my dream situation would be:
Apple: "It appears as if we are evenly matched."
Samsung: "It appears so."
Apple: "I would like you to stop so blatantly ripping off our designs in some cases."
Samsung: "Hmmm, and if we continue we will be severely crippled, both of us."
Samsung: "How about this, you do what you wanna do, we do what we wanna do."
Apple: "Agreed, under one circumstance...Be a bit more original, okay? You don't want to be seen as the Apple copycats do you? Make Samsung your own brand."
