Appeals court rules against Apple in Samsung patent dispute
February 28, 2016 - Uncategorized
Lost in the hubbub surrounding Apple’s legal wrangling with the FBI is the fact that Apple is currently involved in another high-profile court case—the company’s ongoing patent dispute with Samsung over various iPhone-related patents.
On Friday, a US Court of Appeals judge tossed a nearly $120 million judgement against Samsung, Bloomberg reports, ruling that two disputed patents held by Apple were not valid.
According to Bloomberg, the nullified patents in question include one that covers the “slide to unlock” mechanism on the iPhone’s home screen.
