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.

They really don't have any valuable IP.

I think everyone but the iJury knew who the real copycat was. Let the Crapple lemmings begin their squawking begin. 🙄
Don't forget the almost half BILLION dollar settlement that Apple made with Nokia to revent legal action!
