The $120 million ruling in Apple’s favor has been overturned by the U.S. appeals court, as Samsung was found to have not infringed upon the patents. Samsung was accused of infringing on Apple’s “quick links” patent and two other patents, and the initial ruling went in Apple’s favor. Reuters reports:
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., said Samsung Electronics Co Ltd did not infringe Apple’s “quick links” patent, and that two other patents covering the iPhone’s slide-to-unlock and auto-correct features were invalid.
The court also noted that Apple actually was liable for infringing upon one of Samsung’s patents, though no specifics are known on that at this time.
