Apple Devices Found to Violate 3 MobileMedia Patents
A jury has found Apple guilty of infringing on three patents owned by MobileMedia, a patent-holding company. The patents pertain to answering calls, batteries, and camera functionality in smartphones. The trial, which was held in Delaware, was limited to assessing Apple's liability, so damages were not awarded. They will be determined in a separate hearing. MobileMedia acquired a swath of mobile patents from Nokia and Sony in 2010. MobileMedia CEO Larry Horn said, "Our goal is really to license these patents broadly to the market." It has similar litigation against HTC and RIM pending. Apple has not commented on the matter.
