Court of Appeals found Apple not guilty of any Google patent infringement
Apple Balla reports that the US appeals court found that Apple was not guilty of any Google Motorola Mobility patent infringement in the design of the iPhone. In 2013, the International Trade Commission ruled Apple as not guilty of infringing six Motorola patents inherited by Google in 2012 when the company acquired Motorola Mobility.
Motorola filed the suit early in 2010, accusing Apple of infringing on a number of their intellectual properties, one of them being the technology that stops users from accidental touch screen activation when the handset touches the ear.
Federal Circuit’s Court of Appeals investigated only one out of six patents Google claimed were infringed.
Apple has been involved in the patent infringement tangle for quite some time with Samsung, but in that case Apple complained of the violation of its patent rights by Samsung. Exactly how much money Samsung owes Apple for the patent infringement is still to be decided.
