Court determined that Apple violated three patents MobileMedia Ideas
A federal court in Wilmington, Delaware, pleaded guilty to Apple for copyright infringement of three Patents of the company MobileMedia Ideas , a company that manages the Patent portfolio of several technology companies, which sued the Cupertino company in 2010 stating had infringed 14 of its patents (later reduced the charge to the current three).
The jury found that the iPhone maker had misappropriated and patented technology for mobile devices, including U.S. 6,070,068 , to show on screen options during a call, the U.S. 6,253,075 , which is’ a method for determining when a cell must reject incoming calls’, and U.S. 6,427,078 , which is called ‘personal communications device, and collect and process data’.
“We are pleased with the court’s decision,” said MobileMedia CEO Larry Horn. While Court Judge Sue L. Robinson, has not yet determined the date on which the court will decide the amount as compensation for damages, Horn estimates that figure could be ‘substantial’.
