Apple loses patent appeal against Samsung

Monday 29 February 2016 | 10:00 CET | News
Samsung will not have to pay USD 119.6 million to Apple over patents for smartphone features, after Apple lost an appeal in a US court, Bloomberg reported. Two Apple patents, including one for its slide-to-unlock feature, are invalid and a third was not infringed, a US appeals court ruled. Samsung can now continue to use the smartphone features and will not have to make any changes to older models.
