The law says that you cannot patent something if you didn't invent it. If a claimed invention has been used before or even written about, this is called prior art, which invalidates a claimed patent.

Those are the technicalities of the law, at least the main ones involved in this case.

All of the patents involved in this trial are for items that have been around much longer than iPhone.

Apple got lucky and the jury misinterpreted the laws. They won't get that lucky on appeal.
