Apple Lost Patent Case

It seems that Apple’s patent trolling failed after the American patent office decided that its iconic “pinch to zoom” patent didn’t spring fully formed from the genius of Steve Jobs.


It is known that the patent figured prominently in an infringement lawsuit against Samsung Electronics, or at least that’s what the South Korean company said in a US federal court. As a result, Apple will have to respond within two months, and the experts agree the company will almost certainly appeal and seek a judicial review.

The patent in question was involved in Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung, when a year ago Apple was awarded $1.05 billion in damages. However, at the time the court has ordered a partial retrial in order to review the damages to be paid to the tech giant. Media reports confirm that the patent office believes the “pinch to zoom” idea was anticipated in U.S. Patent No. 7,724,242 awarded to Daniel W. Hillis and Bran Ferren.

For example, Hillis explains distinguishing the number of contact points and determining whether the event object matches a gesture pattern. Thus far, the USPTO has already rejected a number of claims of another patent regarded as an “overscroll bounce” one. Apple claimed that the reexamination wasn’t finished, and the company is entitled to file a response to the action that may lead to a withdrawal of the rejection or certification of the claims under reexamination.

This is what can put the entire Apple versus Samsung case in trouble – although Samsung will clearly have to pay Apple something, it still can argue for much lower damages. In addition, it means that plans of Apple to keep Samsung devices off the shelves will be bogged down for much longer.

No avatarSHITpple sucks. ITC was set to ban their products in USA, but it being an American company SHITbama overruled the decision. I am pretty sure he was paid billions of $'s for it.

Darkan9el avatarI think I invented the pinch to zoom, I can vaguely remember being 4 and pinching/squeezing a zit, the result was a 3D zoom effect. I didn't grasp the enormity at the time and I didn't know how to submit a patent form, lesson learned I must study more. Maybe patent application should be taught in infant schools.

tonymengela avatarevery time i read comments about how crappy apple is, I just shake my head. What I have found on the street is people who hate apple are people who cant afford apple or was somehow left out of the click or some ignorant thing like that. I have had all platforms and apple has the best working and user friendly interface hands down, there was NO smart phone until apple. Sure there was black berry but they could never really adapt and would never develop their software. I have apple and android but my apple is far better all the way around. Samsung only came out with what they have from apple patents and it is pretty obvious, I am am sure some sore apple hating person is going to tell me how wrong I am but it will just be an opinion kind of like a religion. In the end I just want to see the Ubuntu phone come up that is what has me excited for future smart phones, ohh if I had a few million to invest in that!

tonymengela avatarIt is all about commerce, about generating money. sure you can download a song on your android but the quality is garbage. Almost every company outsources components, even samsung has to. The great debate is this, if I develop a product and hire you to build the components you agree to build the components NOT start copying them and building your own to compete with me. This is the real issue. The issue is not whether you like something or not, and patents are set up so that one day they DO run out and technology can be shared, like it or not this is a profit based world. People who dont like apple are people who are cheap and want everything for nothing. I am here personally to evaluate whether or not I want a movie for the most part, if I like it I buy the BR or HDVD to play on my home system. Some would say that is questionable but at least I support the companies because they do make the world turn and it pays for R&D, hate all you want but the fact still remains apple held the patents on the technology and Samsung copied them.

Tonybigguns avatarIt's funny how the apple lovers say those of us that don't own one are cheap. You crack me up. How about we are better than you because we buy what we like not what society tells us we like. I buy all my phones at full retail because I will not let Verizon take away my unlimited data plan. Sounds stupid but that's my way of not playing their game. Iphones are girly looking. Most of the owners are young girls in the 7-16 age group. You can love on them all you want but saying we can't afford them shows how little you are. Move out of your parents basement and see how many new Iphones you can afford.

If you like being told what to do with the items you paid for buy Apple products.
If you like doing what you want with the products you paid for go with any other product.

Facts are facts. I don't have an Iphone my wife did and it was garbage.

Idrones are told to buy a new phone every 6-12 months and if you go to the store on those new release dates there they are lined up around the block saying "Thank you master what should we do next?"

Let the fight begin...

No avatarJobs stole almost the half of all "Inventions" that people believe to be his worl.
Apple did steal technology whereever they could, starting back in the 80s, taking things from Commodore, Amiga, Atari and several other companies and later claining, they invented them.

Apple invented the PC ? Yeah, right, and Bll Gates invented the Alphabet, right ?

The first "tablet" PC was invented YEARS before Jobs was thinking about it at all, just do some research and you will find the right informations.
ThatÄs the reason why Apple is losing in court all over the world, except in the USA, where the courts don't judge about what's right or wrong, but mainly against Non-US companies, even though 95 percent of all Apple products aren't even manufactured in the US, but these moronic US-Americans don't get that at all.
