According to Reuters, the US Court of Appeals ruled that Apple is not guilty of patent infringement on Google Motorola Mobility technology when designing iPhone. Initially, in 2013, the International Trade Commission found Apple not guilty of violating six Motorola patents that Google inherited when it acquired Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion in 2012.
Motorola originally filed the suit in 2010, claiming that Apple was guilty of infringing on its several intellectual properties, such as the technology that prevents accidental activation of the touch screen of the phone when holding the handset on the ear. Out of six patents, only one was being investigated by the Federal Circuit’s Court of Appeals.
It is not the only Apple’s patent infringement recent tangle. Apple has been involved since 2011 in the litigation with Samsung, but in that case it was Apple who complained of its patent infringement.
