US appeals court agrees with ITC, Apple not infringing Samsung patent

updated 05:41 pm EDT, Wed May 14, 2014

Four Samsung patents at stake alleged to cover older iPhones, iPads

A court of appeals has failed to resurrect a US International Trade Commission complaint filed by Samsung against Apple. The appeals court today ruled that the suit would not be reinstated as the court found it agreed with the ITC's determination, and previous rulings in favor of the Cupertino manufacturer would stand.

The four patents involved include one (known as '114 by the last three digits of its full US patent number) that covered user interface and viewing of digital documents; a patent ('980) for a method of dialing in a smartphone; the '644 patent that covers transmitting and receiving data reliably using packet data trasmission, and the '348 patent that involves the encoding and decoding of transport format combination indicators on CDMA phones.
