Apple's Bounce Scroll patent is now invalid in the U.S.
This is a most interesting turn of events, since Apple used this patent during its trial against Samsung earlier this year. The verdict of the trial said that Samsung has to pay $1.05 billion to Apple due to patent infringements, but with this new discovery, things might take an unexpected turn once again.
Still, the "Bounce Scroll" patent has been "tentatively" invalidated, which should mean that the outcome of this legal battle is still up in the air.
