Court in Tokyo rules that Samsung infringed on Apple's bounce back patent
Samsung and Apple are currently battling over patents in ten countries with the sequel to last year's epic court battle expected to start next February, as Judge Lucy Koh is set to reprise her role as presiding judge. The bounce back, or rubber-banding patent, could play a big role in the upcoming trial.
Information from Tokyo says that the ruling against Samsung covers some of its older models, although specific device names were not mentioned. The Tokyo court is expected to release more information on the ruling later on Friday.
