Judge in U.K. says HTC doesn't infringe on Apple patents, calls three Apple patents invalid

0. phoneArena 04 Jul 2012, 12:08 posted on

It's becoming increasingly apparent that one court's infringement is another court's non-event; in the U.K., Judge Christopher Floyd ruled that HTC did not infringe on four Apple patents, saying that three of the patents were invalid...

Actually per FOSS posting what Koh said, not everything she does was complete crap.

"Even though Apple had a clear case of an infringement of a valid software patent, Judge Koh held that "Apple has failed to meet its burden to establish that money damages will not be sufficient to compensate Apple for the Samsung products that likely infringe the '381 patent". For example, Apple has not "shown that consumers' purchasing decisions are based on the existence of a snap back feature protected by the '381 patent."

This only meant that she wouldn't ban on this patent, things may be different when the trial commences. But still.

Wasnt the G Nex also cited for slide to unlock at one time?

So if the G Nex case turns out different than what? Will you also say Samsung didnt?

I swear.....these iFans are a real strange bunch.

That explains why Samsung products sell more than HTC products. Samsung phones are an extremely poor man's iPhone minus the quality.

Umm, aren't the phones priced about the same? It's usually the poor iPhone owners that come up with these kind of comments though.

Another one to add to the iFan list.....this list has been growing lately...

Not even worth responding to the actual comment. Have a good day.

Check out the reviews of the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 4s here on PhoneArena, then come back and tell us which got a higher rating...

A review does not always determine how good a phone is.

The 10 million sold in one month and universally good reviews do, though. Thanks for playing.

iphones are the dumb phones of smartphones these days. The technological illiterate buy them. I know i have worked for one of the big 3 and all the people that buy iphones are people who arent tech savy or are elderly. So how can you say that samusung devices are "poor man's iPhones" Android 1.6 beats the current iOS 6 hands down

At least most iPhones will get iOS 6 while a lot of Android phones are still stuck on Gingerbread.

Well, every iPhone will get ios 6. But most will not get all of the features of iOS 6, making it simply a minor update with the "iOS 6" name for most. Since iOS 6 pretty much stole things gingerbread was already doing, a gingerbread phone is still more advanced. Gingerbread users have been replying to a phone call with a message for a while now.

I'm sorry...but trying to have a rational convo with a troll, iFan is borderline insanity.

More power to ya. Still, I agree 100% with what you are saying. Its not like EVERY iPhone user has the latest iPhone.

Get iOS6 to have what Androids have on Android 5.1? That's pretty nice for iPhone users, catching up.

This is golden.
Yes. The Galaxy S3 is "an extremely poor man's iPhone," despite its price point (either on or off contract) being exactly the same as the iPhone. And of course it lacks quality too, because Samsung has NEVER made a good product. Well, you know, other than the iPhone's display.

By the way, I hope you are a representative of Otterbox. If you are not, you are damaging intellectual property, and no one wants that.

Score one for android across the "pond". Too bad judge Koh is too stupid to see these lawsuits for the BS that they are.
