Japanese court rejects two of Samsung’s patent infringement claims against Apple

FOSS Patents:

On Saturday, the English edition of Japanese newspaper The Asahi Shimbun revealed rulings by the Tokyo District Court that had already come down on September 14 and October 11. About a year ago, Samsung had brought three claims against the iPhone 4S. The September 14, 2012 ruling reportedly held Apple not to infringe a Samsung patent related to app downloads, and the October 11, 2012 ruling was apparently based on doubts about the validity of a patent relating to the in-flight (airplane) mode. I interpret the report by Asahi Shimbun staff writer Ryo Takano to the effect that the patent wasn’t considered a non-obvious innovation over the prior art.
