Court of appeal: Apple violated any Motorola patents

2014-03-21  |  Comebuy News

A US appeals court has noted on Friday that Apple uses no patented techniques by Google's subsidiary Motorola mobility. The U.S. Court of appeals for the Federal Circuit confirmed that a decision such as Reuters reports the International Trade Commission of the United States from April.

"We are disappointed by this judgment and consider our options," Motorola said. Apple gave no opinion on the decision.

Motorola mobility had sued Apple already in 2010 due to the alleged infringement of six patents. You describe among others techniques to reduce signal interference and a proximity sensor. In April 2013, the International Trade Commission ruled that Apple infringed none of the rights in question. The Court of Appeal dealt only with one of these six patents that Google had acquired with the purchase of Motorola mobility for 2012 of $12.5 billion.

Other companies argue with Apple in court for alleged patent violations. The most prominent example is the years of confrontation with Samsung. She began in April 2011 with the accusation on the part of Apple's Samsung with its Galaxy devices copy the look and feel of iPhone and iPad.

In November, a jury in a retrial ruled that Samsung Apple owe $290 million in additional damages. So is the entire compensation to nearly $930 million. Most recently agreed to lead mediation talks, the parties in dispute, and thus came a request of the competent judge Lucy Koh. The arbitration hearing will take place on 19 February.
